We study basic properties related to the task of localizing a source using distance-difference measurements to it. These properties are related to minimalistic realizations of localization systems in terms of the number of sensors and computational complexity. We first establish conditions for unique identification of a source in Euclidean plane. We then derive the minimum number of sensors needed for uniquely identifying a source for cases where it is located anywhere in the Euclidean plane… CONTINUE READING
