This chapter discusses radio-based positioning. It surveys and compares several received signal strength localization approaches from two broad categories: point-based and area-based. It also explores their performance and means to improve it. It describes GRAIL - a sample positioning system. It finally concludes with a brief discussion of sensor applications that utilize location information.
