Abstract

As the development of technology, the wireless sensor networks (WSN) have a wide spread usage. And people pay more attention on the localization algorithm, as the key technology of WSN, there have been many method of self-localization. The concentric anchor-beacons (CAB) location algorithm is one of the most practical one, which is a range-free WSN localization algorithm. In order to further improve the accuracy of localizing nodes, an improved CAB location algorithm base on Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) is proposed. The RSSI is used to measure the distance between two anchors and compare with the practical distance. Then the environment between two anchors can be simulated. At last the communication radius of anchors can be optimized. And the common area of the anchors in the process of localizing nodes can be reduced. Then the accuracy is improved. By simulation, the localization accuracy is improved when the anchors numbers is more than a certain percentage.
