Java Positioning Simulator for Wireless Sensor Networks

Java Positioning Simulator for Wireless Sensor Networks

Positioning simulator was developed in order to simulate the performance of Anchor-Free Localization algorithms under the different distance estimation methods. The simulators allows to model the energy consumption accordance with the communication platform selection.

A simulator is designated for an anchor-free localization of nodes in wireless sensor network defined by IEEE 802.15.4 standard. It was proposed as the web-based Java simulator. User can define a number of nodes, a measurement error, a density of network and type of distance measurement technique. The trend of energy consumption in a dependency on a number of optimization steps is the output of the simulator. The final located layout is also the output of the simulation. The simulator implements a AFL algorithm for the coordinates estimation.
