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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
