In the past various solutions for localization evolved to productive usage for wireless applications. These solutions are robust, precise and energy efficient. However, scalability, complexity and flexibility are still open issues. Especially the supported number of objects or update rates for localization are still limiting factors for the usage of the systems. In this work we suggest an approach called S-TDoA which stands for sequential Time Difference of Arrival that supports an unlimited number of objects and high update rates. The key concept is a sequential triggering of anchors that send periodic messages. Tags determine their position by listening to the anchor messages and measuring time intervals. Additionally, this approach enhances security because tags are not visible as they do not send messages. We implement and evaluate S-TDoA in a localization system based on UWB-RF-Chips. The preliminary results demonstrate the advantages of our implementation regarding scalability and update rates as well as privacy.
