Mazomenos, Evangelos, Reeve, Jeff and White, Neil, Brugger, Juergen and Briand, Danick(eds.) (2009) An accurate range-only tracking system using wireless sensor networks [in special issue: Proceedings of the Eurosensors XXIII Conference] Procedia Chemistry, 1, (1), pp. 1199-1202.

This paper discusses the design of a real-time tracking system targeted for deployment in wireless sensor networks. The system, utilizes accumulated range data from a number of anchor sensor nodes to infer the position and other kinematic of a mobile target. To track manoeuvring targets three dynamic models are used. A particle filter inspired algorithm o the range measurements in real-time to produce an estimate of the target’s position and two-axis velocity. The evaluated through simulations that reveal its ability to accurately (RMSE <10m) track manoeuvring targets.
