A path planning for mobile beacon nodes is presented based on the node localization problem of WSN. The beacon nodes define the unknown node position by using ranging method of RSSI. By analyzing defects of a static trajectory, random trajectory, the beacon nodes move to the maximum coverage of unlocated nodes. The simulation result demonstrates that this algorithm obtains good localization performance and can be well adapted to the WSN node localization problem.
