Abstract

Localization of sensor nodes is an important aspect in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). This paper presents an overview of the major localization techniques for WSNs. These techniques are classified into centralized and distributed depending on where the computational effort is carried out. The paper concentrates on the factors that need to be considered when selecting a localization technique. The advantages and limitation of various techniques are also discussed. Finally, future research directions and challenges are highlighted.
