In this paper we develop a continuous high-precision tracking system based on Received Signal Strength Indicator(RSSI) measurements for small ranges. The proposed system uses minimal number of sensor nodes with RSSI capabilities to track a moving object in close-proximity and high transmission rate. The close-proximity enables conversion of RSSI measurements to range estimates and the high transmission rate enables continuous tracking of the moving object. The RSSI-based tracking system includes calibration, range estimation, location estimation and refinement. We use advanced statistical and signal processing methods to mitigate channel distortion and packet loss. The system is evaluated in indoor settings and achieves tracking resolution of few centimeters. Therefore, it becomes the motion trackers of notice in many applications.
