      Relay selection for optimal communication as well as multiple source localization is studied. We consider the use of dual-role nodes that can work both as relays and also as anchors. The dual-role nodes and multiple sources are placed at fixed locations in a two-dimensional space. Each dual-role node estimates its distance to all the sources within its radius of action. Dual-role selection is then obtained considering all the measured distances and the total SNR of all sources-to-destination channels for optimal communication and multiple source localization. Bit error rate performance as well as mean squared error of the proposed optimal dual-role node selection scheme are presented.
