Abstract

Location aware computing is popularized and location information has more important before. Ubiquitous computing also needs locaiton information. In this paper we propose location estimation system using multi-hop wireless ad-hoc network. The proposed system estimates locations of mobile hosts, using distance between hosts and the locations of some special hosts which know each location by GPS or other devices. This system is designed as client-server model. The server is called an accumulator host and calculates the locations of all hosts. We also describe an estimation algorithm running in the accumulator host.
