|Abstract:||Localization schemes for wireless sensor networks can be|
classified as range-based or range-free. They differ in the information used for localization. Range-based methods use range measurements, while range-free techniques only use the content of the messages. None of the existing algorithms evaluate both types of information. Most of the
localization schemes do not consider mobility. In this paper, a Sequential Monte Carlo Localization Method is introduced that uses both types of information as well as mobility to obtain accurate position estimations, even when high range measurement errors are present in the network and
unpredictable movements of the nodes occur. We test our algorithm in various environmental settings and compare it to other known localization algorithms. The simulations show that our algorithm outperforms these known range-oriented and range-free algorithms for both static and
dynamic networks. Localization improvements range from 12% to 49% in a wide range of conditions.
