This repository contains the following components:

  • Plots.ipynb, the ipython notebook used to reproduce all plots used in the paper. This is the best point of entry.
  •, the code used to run your own simulations.
  •, some very simple tests to make sure the code runs.
  • icassp_results/ contains the results used in the paper (created by run_simulation)
  • other folders create some example test results.


This repository relies on a python toolbox called pylocus, which contains implementations of various angle- and distance based localization algorithms.

The source code and installation instructions can be found at

The results were created using the release 0.0.1 of the package. If you use pip, you can install it and other required packages by running

pip install -r requirements.txt
