RF-Based Time-of-Flight Locationing System

Architecture of prototype RF-based locationing system using fixed reference nodes.

To develop an narrow-band RF-based Time-of-Flight (TOF) locationing system with sub-meter positioning resolution which can be used to location nodes within wireless sensor networks (WSNs). This will enable accurate locationing without the requirement of wired infrastructure and synchronisation between devices. Further development will involve the adaption of these techniques to relative locationing algorithms.
