High uncertainty aware localization and error optimization of mobile nodes for wireless sensor networks

Raja Thejaswini Nandyala, Muthupandi Gandhi


The localization of mobile sensor nodes in a wireless sensor network (WSN) is a key research area for the speedy development of wireless communication and microelectronics. The localization of mobile sensor nodes massively depends upon the received signal strength (RSS). Recently, the least squared relative error (LSRE) measurements are optimized using traditional semidefinite programming (SDP) and the location of the mobile sensor nodes was determined using the previous localization methods like least squared relative error and semidefinite programming (LSRE-SDP), and approximate nonlinear least squares and semidefinite programming (ANLS-SDP). Therefore, in this work, a novel high uncertainty aware-localization error correction and optimization (HUA-LECO) model is employed to minimize the aforementioned problems regarding the localization of mobile sensor nodes and enhance the performance efficiency of root mean square error (RMSE) results. Here, the position of target mobile sensor nodes is evaluated based on the gathered measurements while discarding faulty data. Here, an iterative weight updation approach is utilized to perform localization based on Monte Carlo simulations. Simulation results show significant improvement in terms of RMSE results in comparison with traditional LSRE-SDP and ANLS-SDP methods under high uncertainty.
