dc.description.abstractThis thesis presents the design and implementation of a real time location system (RTLS) for wireless mesh networks. The system uses the received signal strength as the method of distance measurement. A prototype of this system is presented using off-the-shelf components. Arguments are made for its advantages over current alternatives in terms of development and deployment costs. Several experiments were conducted on an experimental prototype and a simulated environment. These tests evidence the capabilities and functionality of the system to locate nodes on a wireless network.en_US
dc.description.abstractEste trabajo de tesis presenta el diseño e implementación de un sistema de localización en tiempo real para redes inalámbricas en topología de malla. El sistema utiliza el indicador de fuerza de señal de radio frecuencia como el método para determinar distancias. Se presenta también un prototipo del sistema utilizando tecnología comercial como parte de las herramientas para diseño y desarrollo. Se argumenta sobre los beneficios de estas decisiones sobre la facilidad de desarrollo y costos de instalación. También se han conducido varias pruebas sobre este prototipo experimental. Estas pruebas demostraron las capacidades y funcionalidad del sistema.en_US
