    Source positioning in a large-scale tiny-sensor network of arbitrary topology

    To effectively localise a source node in a dense wireless tiny-sensor network with an arbitrary 2D/3D node distribution, a novel approach suitable to describe the hop progress of source-to-sink path in such a ...

    Schedule-based sequential localization in asynchronous wireless networks

    In this paper, we consider the schedule-based network localization concept, which does not require synchronization among nodes and does not involve communication overhead. The concept makes use of a common tra...

    Performance evaluation of an acoustic indoor localization system based on a fingerprinting technique

    We present an acoustic location system that adopts the time of arrival of the path of maximum amplitude as a signature and estimates the target position through nonparametric kernel regression. The system was ...

    Tracking target signal strengths on a grid using sparsity

    Multi-target tracking is mainly challenged by the nonlinearity present in the measurement equation and the difficulty in fast and accurate data association. To overcome these challenges, the present paper intr...
