This paper reports a compact, robust distance-only sensor for networked small robotic platforms. Two methods of sensing distance (neglecting heading) between robots are discussed: Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) and Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA). Both implementations make use of a commercially available wireless sensor network board for communication and processing. Although RSSI requires no additional hardware, TDOA requires several additional components including a sound source… CONTINUE READING
