We present a new approach to localizing an isotropic energy source using measurements from distributed sensors based on kernel averaging techniques. The location estimate is easily and efficiently calculated in a decentralized fashion. Statistical properties are derived for a very general measurement model. Experiments suggest that the proposed estimator is much more robust and exhibits better performance characteristics than the popular least squares estimator under a variety of conditions.
