Haghighata, Fariborz Mahmoudiaand Behrooz ShahrokhzadehaaIslamic Azad University, Qazvin Branch, Daneshgah Street, Qazvin, IranAbstractRandom deployment of wireless sensors in the network environment and the need for determining sensors locationhas made the localization problem as a critical challenge in wireless sensor networks. One of the efficient approachesto solve this problem is the heuristic algorithm based on simulated annealing. Despite the advantages of such analgorithm, its major weakness is accuracy reduction in low density networks and the increase of the localizationprocessing time associated with the growth of the network density. This paper aims at providing a solution to increasethe efficiency of this algorithm. To this end, first we applied Iterative Multilateration method in a base station. Withthis idea the completely random initial estimation is replaced by an appropriate estimation location of sensor nodes,so while the prevention of localization error propagation in the whole network, the computation is decreasedconsiderably at the be
