Paper Abstract

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology has been applied more and more widely and node localization is an important aspect of it. Bounding Box localization algorithm has been used in many cases. The purpose of this paper is to study the localization accuracy of the three different strategies based on Bounding Box localization algorithm and to explore the influence of the two parameters, the number of the anchor nodes and communication radius, on the localization accuracy. Firstly, the paper illustrates the principals of three strategies according to whether the unknown nodes that have been located will participate in locating other unknown nodes or not. Then the simulation condition is set, and the average localization error is gotten using three strategies respectively. The result shows the localization accuracy of Strategy C is the highest. Finally, the paper studies the influence of the number of the anchor nodes and the length of the communication radius on the localization accuracy and gives the optimal number of anchor nodes and communication radius when used in practice.
