We present a sensor network based indoor localization system that uses ultrasonic distance measurements for realtime localization of flying four-rotor robots. Such quadrocopters are on-board sensor controlled systems. They are very sensitive to lateral drifts, which cannot be compensated by mounted sensors. In our work, we provide a framework for time-of-flight based localization systems relying on ultrasonic sensors. It is optimized for use in sensor nodes with low computational power and… CONTINUE READING
