Abstract

In this paper we address the problem of node localization in wireless heterogeneous networks focussing particularly on anchor selection methods to estimate position. The Optimized Link State Routing protocol (OLSR) [1] uses special nodes called Multipoint Relay (MPR) nodes to broadcast control messages within the network. We propose a novel approach based on using these Multipoint Relay (MPR) nodes as anchor nodes to estimate nodes positions. We evaluate its performance by simulation and compare it to other selection techniques such as convex hull selection and greedy selection.
