GPS-Free-Free Positioning System for Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract : Positioning systemsare important components of many communication architectures. The traditional Global Positioning System (GPS) is impractical in many situations, which makes the need for relative measurement-based approaches. Existing relative solutions lead to good results but generally require that nodes are embedded with specific capabilities. In this paper, we propose GPS-Free-Free, a simple positioning system based on distances in number of hops between nodes. GPS-free-free make very loose assumptions (only neighborhood discovery) and does not require the computation of complex algorithms. We show through simulations that GPS-free-free leads to good placement results at very low signaling overhead.
