In this paper, we consider the problem of locating an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) which moves on a plane in an industrial environment by means of Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) signaling from fixed Anchors Nodes (ANs) situated in the (threedimensional) space. An analytical approach to optimize, under proper (realistic) constraints, the placement of the ANs used to locate the AGV is proposed. Analytical results are confirmed by simulations.
