Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of a collection of spatially distributed radio transceivers with attached sensors that can measure and gather information from the environment. In this paper, we focus on the application of WSNs to indoor localization and, for this purpose, we propose the use of a Ultra Wide Band (UWB) WSN. The use of UWB signals guarantees robust performance in dense multipath environments, making them an attractive choice for indoor localization. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
