We propose an RF-based localization system that works using a single anchor node. The anchor is equipped with a switched-beam directional antenna that is installed on the ceiling of a room and collects signal strength information sufficient for absolute 2D target positioning. Indoor measurements are used to show satisfactory localization results with range-free (proximity), range-based and fingerprinting schemes.
