RELATIVE NODES LOCALIZATION IN WIRELESS NETWORKS USING RECEIVED STRENGTH SIGNAL VARIATIONS

Mohamed Salah Bouassida, Mohamed Shawky

Abstract

The geographical localization of entities in a wireless network is one of the most important issues of neighborhood awareness. A precise localization provides an advantage for the geographically-located services. However, the geographical localization within a wireless network should take into account the characteristics and the specificities of such environment. In this paper, we present a technique allowing a receiver to localize a sender within its range, without additional devices, as a GPS (Global Positioning System). We use only 3 RSSIs (Received Strength Signal Indicators) measurements, under the assumption that the sender sends messages with the same signal strength.
