Abstract
Location awareness has become one of the most popular areas for mobile internet applications. Normally, the method of maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) can be used to estimate the position of the unknown nodes. However, when the number of anchor nodes is small within the communication range, the traditional methods cannot work very well. This paper provides a novel location approach to estimate the position by selecting valuable neighbors (both anchor and regular nodes) with Minimized Error Propagation Location method based on Error estimation (MEPLE). The simulation results show that the MEPLE outperforms the MLE overall, especially when the number of anchor node is relatively small such as between 10 and 20, MEPLE can reduce 50% to 80% estimation error on average.
