Abstract

In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), localization techniques plays a major role in identifying the location of any object. The exact co-ordinates should be traced, which will be helpful in identifying the location of an object. In this we have few nodes with the known co-ordinate values and with the help of them we are able to find the location of unknown sources. Also considering Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) for the same. Localization algorithms are mainly subdivided into two major categories, namely Range Free and Range Based. The paper gives the classification of algorithm techniques and explore two main algorithms that is Time of Arrival (TOA) for Line of sight(LOS) and Non Line of Sight(NLOS) environments and also Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) for the same.
