Wireless sensor networks (WSN) have been considered as promising tools for many location-dependent applications such as area surveillance, search and rescue, mobile tracking and navigation, etc. In addition, the geographic information of sensor nodes can be critical for improving network management, topology planning, packet routing and security. Although localization plays an important role in all those systems, itself is a challenging problem due to extremely limited resources available at…
