GDE: a distributed gradient-based algorithm for distance estimation in large-scale networks

  title={GDE: a distributed gradient-based algorithm for distance estimation in large-scale networks},
  author={Qingzhi Liu and Andrei Pruteanu and Stefan Dulman},
Today, wireless networks are connecting most of the devices around us. The scale of these systems demands for novel techniques to maintain availability for various services such as routing, localization, context detection etc. Distance estimation is one of their most important building blocks. The majority of current algorithms, presumes knowledge about node position via systems such as GPS. While for some application scenarios this approach is feasible, for a lot of cases it suffers from… CONTINUE READING
