RSSI-based localization technology is widely concerned for WSN node localization. However, this kind of methods has relatively larger localization error, and its localization rate is low. In order to enhance the localization accuracy, the localization error is declined by considering the construction of signal transmission model as well as the ranging process, and a modified weighted centroid localization algorithm is proposed in this paper. The simulation results show that the proposed approach can effectively reduce the three-dimensional node localization error.
