Abstract

Cooperative localization in WSN is used in applications where individual nodes cannot determine their location based on external contact, like e.g. GPS. The applications we focus on are the exploration and mapping of flooded cavities that are otherwise inaccessible or difficult-to-access, e.g. underground (oil-) reservoirs or industrial tanks for e.g. mixing. High levels of miniaturization are required for the nodes to traverse these cavities; nodes will have to be stripped down to a bare minimum. Ultrasound time-of-flight is used as radio communication is infeasible. Network topology is highly unpredictable and fast changing.
