- This paper focuses on the experimental exploration of static trajectories applied for the localization of wireless nodes using unmanned aerial vehicles. Furthermore, a unique scenario is investigated that includes both indoor and outdoor areas. While moving around a building, an unmanned aerial vehicle localizes wireless nodes that are positioned inside that building.
First, a classification of up-to-date static trajectories is provided. Later on, an adaptation of several state-of-the-art static trajectories is presented. The latter include the so called Triangle and Circle trajectories which are investigated in real-world experiments using a single unmanned aerial vehicle serving as a mobile anchor. The experimental data is used to validate the trajectories. Experimental results show that Triangle is better suited for our unique indoor-outdoor scenario.
