Every application of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) requires the data collected from sensor nodes to be reachable from the outside, in order to allow its processing and to obtain information from the monitored phenomena. Environmental protection and agriculture are examples of areas most likely to benefit from the deployment of WSNs. Devices equipped with(More)
Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) sensors are used nowadays in a wide range of applications, from robotics to entertainment. Recently, this technology has also been adopted to equip Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) replacing traditional electro-mechanical sensors. In this work we present a low-cost embedded IMU which is based on a low-cost embedded(More)
—Precise indoor localization of moving targets is a challenging activity which cannot be easily accomplished without combining different sources of information. In this sense, the combination of different data sources with an appropriate filter might improve both positioning and tracking performance. This work proposes an algorithm for hybrid positioning in(More)
1 Summary In this work we present an evaluation of the performance of a range-based hybrid localization algorithm based on the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) and inertial data applied in a real world WSN. As can be found in literature, RSSI-based localization algorithms exhibit low accuracy due to the variability of the radio signal. Adding(More)
