Research in the area of wireless sensor networks has seen unprecedented growth inthe last decade. Human deployable ad-hoc networks are being used to communicateessential information in places where there is no network or the network is destroyeddue to a disaster like a flood, hurricane, earthquake and other geologic processes.The research in the field of autonomous vehicle to reach a GPS location along a trailin an unstructured outdoor environment inspired us to make a breadcrumb network.The term breadcrumb is inspired from the well-known fairy tale Hansel and Gretel,in which Hansel uses breadcrumbs dropped on a trail to trace the way back home.The prototype of this work has been made using RaspberryPis, GPS modules, andXBees. The breadcrumb network will help in localizing its nodes and send the GPScoordinates to the autonomous vehicle. This work has analyzed all the complicationswhich might occur in case a breadcrumb GPS does not work.
