Abstract

The invention introduces a method for range finding nodes in the dedicated wireless network. The method is based on the Time-of-arrival approach but substitutes time interval measurement with frequency (or period) measurement. The said measurement can be done using a cheap 8-bit MCU reducing the design cost. The method does not harm the data transport capability of the network.
