To determine the coordinates of a tag, distance estimation can employed. There are different form of distance estimation depending on the utilized hardware. In this thesis, different schemes for two-way ranging are investigated.


There are different schemes for two-way ranging (e.g. double-sided-two-way ranging, symmetrical double-sided two-way ranging, etc. In this thesis the different schemes are investigated and analysed. Additionally, the schemes are implemented and evaluated using our TinyTriSOS platform.
