An optimality analysis of sensor-target geometries for signal strength based localization

Bishop, Adrian; Jensfelt, Patric


In this paper we characterize the bounds on localization accuracy in signal strength based localization. In particular, we provide a novel and rigorous analysis of the relative receiver-transmitter geometry and the effect of this geometry on the potential localization performance. We show that uniformly spacing sensors around the target is not optimal if the sensor-target ranges are not identical and is not necessary in any case. Indeed, we show that in general the optimal sensor-target...[Show more]
