  title={Robot Localization With DASH7 Technology},
  author={Jan Stevens and Rafael Berkvens and Willy Loockx and Maarten Weyn},
Robot localization needs to be solved in order to use the robot for other purposes. In this paper, we examine the feasibility of DASH7 tags, operating on the 433 MHz unlicensed band, for locating mobile robots in domestic environments. We achieve the same level of accuracy as laser range finder based localization, while using less processing power. Our results indicate that DASH7 can be used for robot localization, solving the robot localization problem. Keywords—Localization, DASH7, WSN, Robot… Expand

Signal strength indoor localization using a single DASH7 message
This paper presents a method to localize a DASH7 mobile node based on a single message and a deterministic propagation model so that single measurement localization approach is possible without maintaining a fingerprint database. Expand
Survey of the DASH7 Alliance Protocol for 433 MHz Wireless Sensor Communication
The DASH7 Alliance Protocol, an active RFID alliance standard for 433 MHz wireless sensor communication based on the ISO/IEC 18000-7, is presented and a software stack implementation named OSS-7 is introduced, which is an open source implementation of the Dash7 alliance protocol used for testing, rapid prototyping, and demonstrations.

Monte Carlo localization for mobile robots
The Monte Carlo localization method is introduced, where the probability density is represented by maintaining a set of samples that are randomly drawn from it, and it is shown that the resulting method is able to efficiently localize a mobile robot without knowledge of its starting location.

Markov Localization for Mobile Robots in Dynamic Environments
A version of Markov localization which provides accurate position estimates and which is tailored towards dynamic environments, and includes a filtering technique which allows a mobile robot to reliably estimate its position even in densely populated environments in which crowds of people block the robot's sensors for extended periods of time.
