The Wireless Localization Problem is a variation of the classical art gallery problem, that deals with the placement of the smallest number of broadcasting antennas required to satisfy some property with respect to a given polygon. Each antenna that is installed must propagate a unique key within a certain specific angle of broadcast in a such a way that the set of keys received at any given point is sufficient to determine whether that point is inside or outside the polygon. To ascertain this localization property, a Boolean formula must be produced along with the placement of the antennas. This research internship at Technische Universität Braunschweig aims to deepen the investigation on the algorithms developed in the student's MSc dissertation and check the feasibility of extending the algorithm to tackle other variants.
