This study, we present a novel robot localization system based on Zigbee nodes. The Zig-Bee locator can provide relative indoor position information. Based on the Zigbee locator, the computer calculates the sensing data and its results are sent to the micro-controller to control motors, to enable make robot walking on the middle of the passageway. The system is successfully implemented and demonstrated in real environment.
