To get the accuracy of Wireless Sensor Network boundary node localization and decrease error, this paper present an arithmetic on RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) weighting circulate localization. This arithmetic is based on RSSI, combination of least squares estimate localization algorithm and weighted centroid circulation method. The algorithm(More)
