Abstract

This work presents initial results from a novel Range-Only Tracking System tailored for implementation in Wireless Sensor Networks. The system utilizes range estimates from a number of anchor nodes, positioned in known locations to infer the trace and velocity of a moving target. To include support for manoeuvring targets, the target’s movement is modeled using a multiple model state-space representation. A Particle Filter inspired tracking algorithm operates on the acquired ranging data to online estimate the target's position and two-axis velocity [1]. Preliminary results from simulating the system under realistic conditions, reveal that good accuracy (<10m) can be achieved, even under cluttered conditions.
