The location information of sensor nodes is needed for location-based services and network management in wireless sensor networks. Among the many kinds of localization schemes researched to find the location of sensor nodes, a few some schemes presume the use of mobile beacons because using mobile beacons has many potentialities. In particular, a(More)
Underwater sensor networks (UWSNs) are considered a cost-effective solution to ocean applications, such as the acquisition of natural resources in oceans, protection from underwater disasters, etc. These applications basically require location information of nodes to identify the venue of reported events. To locate more accurately the position of nodes,(More)
Location information is fundamental and essential for UWSNs monitoring underwater environment. Underwater environment requires three dimensional localization algorithm. Several localization protocols and system architectures have been proposed for underwater sensor networks. In this paper, 3D underwater localization algorithm is proposed for near-sea marine(More)
In underwater sensor networks, localization is one of the most important issues because sensor nodes are considerably difficult to be deployed at determined locations. Localization schemes using a mobile beacon have fine-grained localization accuracy because one mobile beacon can replace a lot of static beacons. In localization with a mobile beacon, the(More)
In underwater sensor networks (UWSNs), localization is an important issue and a challenging task due to harsh environments for people to access. In this paper, we propose a distributed algorithm to locate nodes deployed in 3-D space using long-range beacons floating on the sea surface. Long-range beacons allow underwater nodes directly to obtain reference(More)
This paper presents a bearings-only tracking (BOT) scheme based on distributed floating beacons in underwater sensor networks (UWSNs). Conventional BOT systems extract target-originated bearings in noisy measurements, locate and track targets based on the bearings in real time. We propose a tracking scheme by modifying BOT systems for UWSNs where a(More)
