In wireless sensor network (WSN), localization has a vital role to improve the performance of sensor networks. The proposed fuzzy optimization technique determines the sensor node location in an efficient manner. The weights can be evaluated on the basis of received signal strength indicator (RSSI)-based Mamdani fuzzy inference system. To find the location of the un-localized node, centroid-based technique is proposed. The proposed efficient fuzzy method is represented for a sensor network, and the simulation result gives direction and enhanced the performance of the wireless sensor network. The above said method is an optimistic one for getting the location of the sensors with zero or less error in contrast to simple weighted centroid technique.
