Title: Localization Techniques in Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract: Localization and tracking are important in the field of wireless sensor networks. They had attracted significant research interest during the last three decades.
The recent advances in wireless communications and electronics has led researchers to focus on wireless sensor networks, enabling the development of low-cost, low-power and multi-functional sensors that are small in size and that communicate over short distances.
There is an incremental interest in wireless sensor network localization due to the development of techniques in sensing and wireless communication. This has given rise to various wireless sensor network applications, such as monitoring and controlling homes, cities, and the environment.
The objective of wireless sensor network localization techniques is to estimate the locations of the sensors with unknown positions in a network using the available a priori knowledge of positions of, typically, a few specific sensors in the network and inter-sensor measurements such as distance, time difference of arrival, angle of arrival and connectivity.
In this talk we present an overview of various aspects involved in the design and implementation of wireless sensor network localization systems.
