Abstract:
The selection of relay nodes (RNs) for optimal communication and source location estimation is studied. The RNs are randomly placed at fixed and known locations over a geographical area. A mobile source senses and collects data at various locations over the area and transmits the data to a destination node with the help of the RNs. The destination node not only needs to collect the sensed data but also the location of the source where the data is collected. Hence, both high quality data collection and the correct location of the source are needed. Using the measured distances between the relays and the source, the destination estimates the location of the source. The selected RNs must be optimal for joint communication and source location estimation. We show in this paper how this joint optimization can be achieved. For practical decentralized selection, an opportunistic RN selection algorithm is used. Bit error rate performance as well as mean squared error in location estimation are presented and compared to the optimal relay selection results.
