Localization of Sensor Nodes in WSN Using Area Between a Node and Two Beacons
This paper presents a localization scheme for sensor nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The scheme is capable of localizing the nodes in the region with the help of a few beacon nodes. The nodes don’t have to exchange information among them, which saves time and reduce energy consumption at nodes. Nodes determine their location only based on the information received by them from three closest beacons nodes. The beacon nodes can vary transmit power \(P_t\) to increase or decrease coverage radius.
