A Research on Circular Localization Algorithm of Wireless Sensor Network
This paper based on several common wireless sensor node localization algorithms. According to the concentric localization algorithm principle, we proposed an annular localization algorithm and its improved algorithm .The algorithm uses the anchor node to do node ring through certain rules, narrows unknown nodes estimate area continually, and until finally gets the minimum area contains unknown nodes. Then taking the minimum area centroid position as unknown node’s estimate coordinates. Through the simulation of concentric localization algorithm and its improved algorithm, circular localization algorithm and its improved algorithm, can conclude that: When the proportion of anchor node increases from 5% to 10%, the positioning accuracy is obviously improved in the situation of low energy consumption.
