Distributed estimation of relative position of nodes within a wireless sensor network


The goal is to survey possible technical solutions to the task of distributed estimation of a structure of a network of mobile vehicles, that is estimating the distances and and directions. Among the physical principles, the radio waves seem the most applicable due to ubiquitious wireless networking. The task will be to explore the potentials and pitfalls related to the use of wireless networking protokols. A strong preference for the use of off-the-shelf components and standard protocols will be exerted.
