This compilation for academicians, researchers, and practitioners examines the fast growing area of wireless sensor networks and localization techniques, and explains fundamental theories underpinning measurement techniques and localization algorithms. Despite its focus on localization in wireless sensor networks, many localization techniques introduced in the book can be applied in a variety of wireless networks beyond sensor networks. An introductory chapter covers the basic principles of techniques involved in the design and implementation of wireless sensor network localization systems. The rest of the book covers measurement techniques, localization theory and algorithms, and experimental study and applications. The targeted audience for the book includes designers and planners for wireless localization systems, and researchers. Although not specifically designed as a textbook, the book can be used as a text for graduate courses and research-oriented courses that deal with wireless sensor networks and wireless localization techniques. Mao is affiliated with the University of Sydney, Australia. Fidan is affiliated with National ICT Australia and Australian National University.
