Wireless sensor networks monitor the physical world by taking measurements of physical phenomena. Those measurements, and consequently the results computed from the measurements, may be significantly inaccurate. Therefore, in order to properly design and use wireless sensor networks, one must develop methods that take error sources, error propagation through optimization software, and ultimately their impact on applications, into consideration. In this paper, we focus on location discovery… CONTINUE READING
