WSN-Aided People Localization: A Ray Tracing Network Planning and Performance Analysis Tool

Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are fostering pervasive healthcare applications, where people are remotely monitored, without the full time assistance of professional care-givers. A key enabling element is the possibility to locate people in indoor environments, especially in emergency situations. Framed within the WSN4QoL project, this paper proposes the use of a ray tracing model for network planning, to support efficient people localization and performance analysis. Preliminary results show accurate radio coverage estimations, with a minimal calibration effort.
