Abstract: To improve the node localization efficiency for wireless sensor networks and solve the problem of data transmission, reduce localization cost, analyzed existing node localization algorithm, ensure that one of the core technology for wireless sensor network performance. In this paper, the wireless sensor network node self location and routing protocols of problem to make discuss, put forward a kind of three-dimensional node localization algorithm. This algorithm approximates the node's wireless range as a cube. Finding the cube where an unknown nodes in by the beacon nodes around an unknown nodes, simply using the center of the cube as the estimated location of unknown nodes. This algorithm is simple and the traffic is small, just adapting to a limited energy three-dimensional sensor networks.


Keywords: Node localization, Wireless sensor network, Data transmission, Routing protocols, Three-dimensional
