Abstract Due to the non-line-of-sight NLOS and multipath fading channel MPF of the wireless networks, the non-existence of the intersection point often occurs in the range-based localization methods, e.g., the centroid-based trilateration method. To alleviate the problem, a confidence-based intersection method which expands the range of the circle within a certain confidence interval is proposed. In the method, the confidence interval is estimated based on the Cramér–Rao lower bound of the time of flight TOF measurement. Furthermore, an intersection determination method is proposed to select the intersection point with higher confidence level. The simulation and experimental results show the superiority of the proposed method in localization accuracy and robustness to noise compared to the conventional trilateration method, e.g., the centroid-based and least squares based trilateration methods.
