Existing global positioning systems (GPS) applications are normally denied in indoor environments where, in spite of this limitation, a number of interesting applications are evolving into commercial products. At present, for indoor positioning, there are few cost-effective alternatives to GPS. One promising approach is based on the received signal strength(More)
In this paper, we present a distributed positioning system for indoor environment based on a mesh of compact independent anchor nodes. Each node is built of low-cost off-the-shelf components and operates as specialized access points capable of standard connectivity at 2.45 GHz. The key technology for the localization strategy is the switched beam antenna(More)
In last years the interest in indoor localization techniques is grown very quickly: due to huge increase of interest in domotic technologies and to fast improvement of capabilities for mobile devices, which are becoming always-connected support points for standard users, the capability of making spatial data-contextualization has become an important point(More)
Assuming a reliable and responsive spatial contextualization service is a must-have in IEEE 802.11 and 802.15.4 wireless networks, a suitable approach consists of the implementation of localization capabilities, as an additional application layer to the communication protocol stack. Considering the applicative scenario where satellite-based positioning(More)
In this paper we analyze the cancellation of the interference caused by a Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) on devices operating in the Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) framework. The cancellation is operated by an interference canceller based on the active feed-forward architecture. The canceller is designed to operate over the frequency(More)
This paper describes a distributed point-source monitoring platform for gas level and leakage detection in hazardous environments. The platform, based on a wireless sensor network (WSN) architecture, is organised into sub-networks to be positioned in the plant's critical areas; each sub-net includes a gateway unit wirelessly connected to the WSN nodes,(More)
