Abstract:
An Indoor Positioning System (IPS) routing protocol based on anycast is proposed for localization of emergency responders - referred to as IPS Anycast Routing (IAR). A cross-layer approach is present in the design. This makes IAR extremely simple and lightweight. No dedicated routing packets are needed. Routing information is carried in the network header which constitutes less than 1% of the total capacity. Simulation results show the proposed routing protocol is highly scalable as the number of units increases. The route discovery and end-to-end packet delays are linearly proportional and bounded by the network diameter. Simulation results also reveal that increasing the frequency of broadcasting position information does not significantly increase the speed of route discovery. A low broadcasting frequency conserves bandwidth but is slow in detecting topological changes.

Speaker bio:
Anthony Lo received his combined BSc/BE degree with first class Honours in Computer Science and Electronics Engineering in 1992 and his PhD degree in Protocol and Network Engineering in 1996, all from La Trobe University, Australia. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Prior to his current appointment, he was with Ericsson  EuroLab, and the Centre for Wireless Communications (now I2R) of National University of Singapore. His research interests include Cross Layer Design for Communication Network, Communication Protocols, LTE Advanced and Ad-Hoc Network.
