    Abstract

    An iterative quality-based algorithm for location discovery is presented which can be used in wireless ad hoc sensor networks. The algorithm will take the reliability of measurements into account and will produce a reliability index for every estimated location using a statistical approach. The algorithm can also work in a hybrid network with different kinds of distance measuring techniques. It will use the reliability of each of these methods in the final result. Satisfactory results can be achieved with this approach.
