Approaching a Target using a Protection Feature based on Received Signal Strength Indicator

Kazuyuki Ishii, Naoshi Sato

Abstract

The received signal strength indicator (RSSI) which can be obtained during wireless communication, depending on communication distance, and is used to estimate the distance between a sender and receiver. We focus on the RSSI to determine whether a mobile node is approaching or departing from a target node (T N). To determine approach or departure, we implement the protection step number (PSN) as a protection feature that determines approach or departure when RSSI varies N times of the PSN in a row. N is designed according to RSSI deviation, and the value is computed statistically. In this paper, we demonstrate a method for approaching a TN based on RSSI with and without the proposed PSN.
