Second Order Cone Programming for Sensor Node Localization in Mixed LOS/NLOS Conditions

Abstract

In this paper, a novel method for sensor node localization under mixed line-of-sight/non-line-of-sight (LOS/NLOS) conditions based on second order cone programming (SOCP) is presented. SOCP methods have, hitherto, not been utilized in the node localization under mixed LOS/NLOS conditions. Unlike semidefinite programming (SDP) formulation, SOCP is computationally efficient for resource constrained ad-hoc sensor network. The proposed method can work seamlessly in mixed LOS/NLOS conditions. The robustness of the method is due to the fair utilization of all measurements obtained under LOS and NLOS conditions. The computational complexity of this method is quadratic in the number of nearest neighbours of the unknown node. Extensive simulations and real field deployments are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed method. The experimental results of the proposed method is reasonably better when compared to similar methods in literature.
