    2014 Distributed algorithms: Incremental algorithms • Incremental algorithms perform iteratively: – Additional nodes are localized at each iteration, and then promoted to anchors • Advantages: – Simple to implement (complexity linear in the number of nodes) – Not restricted to isotropic topologies • Drawbacks: – Do not apply to all networks – Error accumulation (hard decision) – Errors due to flips can propagate in an avalanche way Introduction Unique solvability & identifiability Cooperative localization RSS tracking Conclusions
  24. #24 Hadi Noureddine – SCEE Supélec seminar – February 20,

    2014 Distributed algorithms: Successive refinement • Successive refinement algorithms: – Iterative algorithms – At iteration (k) • Node i obtains the estimates of its neighbors Neigh(i) at iteration (k-1) • Then it updates its estimate locally (e.g., by minimizing a local cost function) • Drawbacks: - Very sensitive to initialization - High number of iterations Introduction Unique solvability & identifiability Cooperative localization RSS tracking Conclusions

  28. #28 Hadi Noureddine – SCEE Supélec seminar – February 20,

    2014 Flip ambiguity • Flips correspond to erroneous geometrical realizations (identifability, topology, noise) • Flips mitigation: Exploiting the connectivity information – Non-direct neighbors are more likely to be far from each other – ‘k-step’ neighbors: separated by k hops – Implementation via message passing: • Exchange messages up to ‘k-step’ neighbors – TP-NBP reduces the amount of exchanged data Direct neighbor ‘2-step’neighbor Node of interest MAP estimate for node 5 MMSE estimate for node 5 Belief of node 5 Introduction Unique solvability & identifiability RSS tracking Conclusions Cooperative localization
