Notes

Abstract: We are using widely available 802.11 wireless networks to determine the location of autonomous robots. Before a robot can accomplish a simple task such as moving to a specific coordinate, it must accurately know its current location with-in a certain degree of accuracy. Humans often take their eye sight and spatial awareness for granted. For a robot, the computational difficulty of solving the same problem becomes apparent. Our implementation creates a database of wireless signal strengths of a given area and uses the current signal strength reading within the area to find a weighted signal space distance. The "closest" point in the database should also correlate with the current position of the robot. Given the robots correct location, the authors can successfully navigate around any area with sufficient Wi-Fi coverage.
