Optimal jammer placement in wireless localization networks
The optimal jammer placement problem is proposed for a wireless localization network, where the aim is to degrade the accuracy of locating target nodes as much as possible. In particular, the optimal location of a jammer node is obtained in order to maximize the minimum of the Cramér-Rao lower bounds for a number of target nodes under location related constraints for the jammer node. Theoretical results are derived to specify scenarios in which the jammer node should be located as close to a certain target node as possible, or the optimal location of the jammer node is determined by two or three of the target nodes. In addition, explicit expressions for the optimal location of the jammer node are derived in the presence of two target nodes. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the theoretical results. © 2015 IEEE.
