Received Signal Strength Based Target Localization and Tracking Using Wireless Sensor Networks
This book briefly summarizes the current state of the art technologies and solutions for location and tracking (L&T) in wireless sensor networks (WSN), focusing on RSS-based schemes. The authors offer broad and in-depth coverage of essential topics including range-based and range-free localization strategies, and signal path loss models. In addition, the book includes motion models and how state estimation techniques and advanced machine learning techniques can be utilized to design L&T systems for a given problem using low cost measurement metric (that is RSS). This book also provides MATLAB examples to demonstrate fundamental algorithms for L&T and provides online access to all MATLAB codes. The book allows practicing engineers and graduate students to keep pace with contemporary research and new technologies in the L&T domain.
