In wireless sensor networks the concept of a swarm is used to illustrate how individuals in a group interact. Individuals in a swarm need to know their position relative to each other.

Communication and location awareness together are enabling a whole new category of geolocation applications. Collision avoidance (CAS) - to mention just one of them – is introduced in this article to illustrate the benefits of an extended swarm approach.
