Position information of individual nodes is useful in implementing functions such as routing and querying in ad-hoc networks. Deriving position information by using the capability of the nodes to measure time of arrival (TOA), time difference of arrival (TDOA), angle of arrival (AOA) and signal strength have been used to localize nodes relative to a frame of reference. The nodes in an ad-hoc network can have multiple capabilities and exploiting one or more of the capabilities can improve the… 
Error characteristics of ad hoc positioning systems (aps)
TLDR
Analysis of range/angle free, range based, angle based, and multimodal APS algorithms show a complex tradeoff between the capabilities used, the density of the network, ratio of landmarks, and the quality of the position obtained.

An Anchorless Cooperative Localization System for Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks
TLDR
