Abstract


  This paper presents a low-cost localization system for the high-resolution tracking

of bats. The system bases on a ground network consisting of multiple low-cost receiver stations,

and ultra-lightweight transmitters mounted on the bats. A main challenge of the received signal

strength based localization is the limited dynamic range of the employed low-cost receivers.

This challenge is solved using an efficient 2-stage differential correlation concept. It significantly

improves the dynamic wrt. conventional power detection methods. In addition, this concept

requires low processing power and is robust wrt. frequency offsets. Finally, this paper presents

a performance evaluation employing reference measurements recorded in the rain forest of

Panama.
