This research paper presents indoor localization using weighted localization algorithm (WLA) with impulse radio for ultra-windband. The ultra-wide band is wireless technology short range system, especially in, an indoor localization. In this paper, the proposed process consists of two parts: Firstly, a data collected by measurement environment in a Line-of-Sight using impulse radio and secondly extension weighted localization algorithm with wireless ultra-wideband (WUWB) for localization short-range system in an indoor environment. Its can be improve the distance error. The results are evaluated by the cumulative distribution function to check a probability of distance error. The results provided good improvement which increase the wireless indoor localization precision less than 1 m. The proposed WLA for WUWB localization can be used in various applications for the wireless indoor environment.
