Title

Constraint based node localization for ad-hoc wireless networks and a simulation environment for wildfire detection & mapping using wireless sensor networks

Abstract

"This thesis presents a method of determining node locations in an ad-hoc wireless network. The localization algorithm uses internodal distance measurements to constrain the possible locations for each node. Simulations show that this method is viable for both small and large networks. This generalized localization algorithm was developed while assessing the viability of using a wireless sensor network to detect and map wildfires. For this task, a simulation environment was created that interfaces a wildfire simulator and a network simulator. This simulation environment is presented as a method of validating the use of wireless sensor networks to detect and map wildfires"--Abstract, leaf iii.
