Original Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel simulator for wireless sensor networks serving for the investigation of the sensor node positioning. The proposed simulator implements the concurrent AFL (Anchor-Free Localization) algorithm and enhances it's performance with various distance estimation ethods. One can define if the distance between nodes will be reflected by the number of hops or by the RSSI parameter. The accuracy of the localisation is evaluated by the GER (Global Energy Ratio) metric. In the paper, we also introduce a novel WSS (Weighted Signal Strength) distance estimation method whose performace is compared through the simulations.
