An Underwater Sensor Networks Based Cooperative Positioning System for Falling Water Containers
In the process of shipping, container overboard falling accidents occur frequently. To detect the submerged containers, this paper proposes an underwater acoustic sensor network based detection system, which performs the positioning task through a multi-beacon nodes cooperative method to improve the robustness and accuracy of the system. The simulation results show that the proposed multi-beacon nodes cooperative positioning system can effectively solve the problem of link break between the sensing nodes and the beacon nodes due to the severe underwater environment and extend the detecting area with improved positioning accuracy.
