Abstract

Accurately determining the location of devices is a key challenge in contextual smart sensing. This poster describes how IEEE 802.15.4 radios can be used for accurate proximity sensing of co-located devices. In particular, the effect of low noise amplifiers on the estimation accuracy are discussed.
