System and distributed and dynamic location identification of mobile devices


The present invention provides a system and method for distributed and dynamic location identification of mobile devices, wherein such method continuously estimates the path loss exponent for a specific environment from a priori known distance, hence estimating the distance to another transmitter. In the system and method of the present invention, any blind node can estimate its own location if there exists at least three nodes connected via wireless links in a distributed ad hoc mode within a radio communication range of each other and if each one of said nodes is either equipped with location identification mechanism or its location is fixed and known priori..
