This study mainly focusses on how to retrieve the position of the sensor nodes of a wireless sensor network and with which precision this can be done (assuming the nodes don’t have a GPS module on board). How the topology of the wireless network could be controlled in order to optimise the network for given scenarios is also investigated. The goal of this study is not only to have a theoretical approach of the problem, but also to implement the most promising methods or algorithms on a real sensor network.
