Iterative Bayesian-based Localization Mechanism for Industry Verticals

We propose and evaluate an iterative localization mechanism employing Bayesian inference to estimate the position of a target using received signal strength measurements. The probability density functions of the target’s coordinates are estimated through a Bayesian network. Herein, we consider an iterative procedure whereby our predictor (posterior distribution) is updated in a sequential order whenever new measurements are made available. The performance of the mechanism is assessed in terms of the respective root mean square error and kernel density estimation of the target coordinates. Our numerical results showed the proposed iterative mechanism achieves increasingly better estimation of the target node position each updating round of the Bayesian network with new input measurements.
