Peregrine is a 3-D cooperative network localization and navigation (NLN) system. Peregrine nodes are lowcost business-card-sized devices, consisting of a microprocessor, a commercially available ultra-wideband (UWB) radio module, and a small battery. Recently developed distributed algorithms are used in Peregrine to solve the highly interrelated problems of node inference and node activation in real-time, enabling resource efficiency, scalability, and accuracy for NLN. Our results show that Peregrine achieves decimeter-level 3-D position accuracy in a challenging propagation environment.
