Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of a collection of spatially distributed radio transceivers with attached sensors that can measure and gather information from the environment. In this paper, we focus on the application of WSNs to indoor localization and, for this purpose, we propose the use of a Ultra Wide Band (UWB) WSN. The use of UWB signals guarantees robust performance in dense multipath environments, making them an attractive choice for indoor localization. In this paper, we discuss on different localization strategies: first classic geometric approaches are considered, then the mathematical framework is re-interpreted as an optimization problem. In the latter context, we propose the use of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) in particular, which can overcome limitations of classic (geometric) approaches.
