In this work line ofintersection of mid point of nearest anchor nodes are computed. 6.1 Centroid Localization Simulation In Centroid localization theunknown nodes receive the beacon messages within the range of theircommunication. The nodes then estimatetheir position by taking the average of all the beacon positions using eqn(1) and take the resulting centroid astheir estimated position. The simulationis done within an area of 100 100mwith 40 unknown nodes and 40 beacons as shown in Fig.

9. The beacon nodes and unknown nodes arerandomly distributed inside the area. The simulation is done fordifferent number of beacons varying from 20 to 80 in increments of 10 and thelocalisation error is calculated for each node. The localisation error is average over 50 iterations. Fig.

9. Beacon nodes andUnknown Nodes Distribution Fig. 9 shows the localization results when centroidlocalization is used.

The average erroris in the range of 8m when there is 50 beacons with 40 unknown nodes aresimulated. Fig. 10.

Centroid Localization6.2 Weighted Localization Simulation In weighted localization the weights aremultiplied to the corresponding beacon position and average is taken. Usually distance between the beacon andunknown node is taken as weights . Fig. 11 shows the localisation error betweenthe estimated and actual positions of the unknown nodes. The average localization error was found tobe in order of 6.5m which is better than the centroid localization. Fig.

11. Weighted Localization Simulaltion6.3Proposed Localization Simulation Fig. 12.

Proposed Localization algorithm Inproposed localization the beacons first communicate with each other nodes andthe mid points of each nearby anchor node and unkown node is calculated.Theline of intersection point is measured with the help of equations (3,4,5,6 and7). The resulting localization error simulation is given in Fig. 12. The number of beacon nodes is 50 and 40unknown nodes. The average localization error is around 5.5m which is betterthan both weighted and centroid localization algorithms.

6.4 Comparison of Various Algorithms Fig. 13. No of Beacons vsPosition Errors Fig.

13 isposition error comparison of three algorithms, centroid algorithm, weighted centroid algorithm and improvedalgorithm with beacon node numbers being ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty,seventy and eighty respectively. From Fig. 13 we can intuitively discover that thepositioning error of three algorithms are gradually reduced along with theincrease of the number of beacon nodes. The simulation results show that thepositioning accuracy have been improved. Improved algorithm thus reduces the environment factors and improvespositioning accuracy effectively by using line of intersection of mid point ofnearest anchornodes.6.ConclusionInthis paperwe proposed new localiztioan algorithmwhich estimates the locality information of a sensor node using the line ofintersection of midpoints of the nearest anchor of unknown node which is moreaccurate and it does not require any extra hardware as like range-basedlocalization scheme.Proposed algorithm is easy to implement because computationcomplexity and average location estimation error is low when compared withtraditional centroid and weighted centroid localization scheme.

In thesimulation results the proposed algorithm gives location accuracy and lessaverage location estimation error than the centroid and weighted centroidlocalization method. In future proposed localization algorithm can be appliedfor Three dimensional space. In summary we say that the identification of exactlocation of sensor node plays major role in many real-time research areas.
