Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN’s) are the building blocks of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT in the physical layer; however, they lack a fundamental aspect; WSN’s are not designed to be located. There has been several research papers published that addresses the addition of localization capability in various Wireless Sensor Networks such as Zigbee, BLE’s, LoRa modules, and NB-IoT. In virtually all of the mentioned networks, by adding the localization capability other network and tags advantages such as latency, battery life, scalability, and reliability will be negatively affected; in addition, the localization accuracy obtained would vary significantly depending on the sample rate and method of localization. Most localization methodologies used to locate the position of a moving tag with the mentioned WSN’s utilize Received Signal Strength (RSSI) which is a range free methodology which often has poor localization accuracy and it is not repeatable nor reliable. To address this problem a groundbreaking Wireless Positioning and Sensing Network (WPSN™) is designed developed where not only a localization accuracy of 10 cm is maintained but also latency, reliability, scalability, and battery life of the tags are not sacrificed to maintain and sustain the 10 cm localization accuracy.
