Sufficient intercommunication between ranging module and positioning module was lacked during the current research on the localization issue for IR-UWB wireless sensor networks. The idea of integrative ranging and positioning was proposed in this paper. The ranging module was designed to provide not only the range estimation results to the positioning module, but also the corresponding reliability evaluation results and NLOS identification results. Three positioning algorithms that differently… CONTINUE READING
