As one of the most important applications of wireless sensor network, positioning technology has become a extremely hot research filed. Taking into account of the position of beacon nodess, they make an effect on the positioning accuracy of unknown nodes. Therefore, in this paper, it proposes a new weighted centroid localization algorithm based on the traditional algorithm. For the selection of weight, the distance between beacon nodes and unknown nodes, and the slide length of the triangle are used to formed as the weighted factor. Experiment Simulation results show that this algorithm increased localisition accuracy than that of traditional algorithm.
