Abstract: AbstractIn this paper, we propose and evaluate a distributed, energy-efficient, light-weight framework for target localization and tracking in wireless sensor networks. Since radio communication is the most energy-consuming operation, this framework aims to reduce the number of messages and the number of message collisions, while providing refined accuracy.The key element of the framework is a novel localization algorithm, called Ratiometric Vector Iteration (RVI). RVI is based on distance ratio estimates rat…
