  • For wireless sensor networks, received signal strength (RSS) and proximity (also known as connectivity) measurements have been proposed as simple and inexpensive means to estimate range between devices and sensor location. While RSS measurements are recognized to suffer from errors due to the random nature of the fading channel, proximity measurements, ie., knowing only whether or not two devices are in communication range, are often discussed without considering that they are affected by the… CONTINUE READING
