This paper presents a new approach for self localization of wireless sensors. Various algorithms have been proposed for localization of wireless sensor networks and are based on computational measurements. The suggested approaches estimate the location of sensors implemented with concepts of functionalities and future scopes. The proposed algorithm relies on a range measurement technique between a pair of nodes and their arrangement to cover maximum area surrounding the main node. Hence, a confident position of sensor is established. The evident advantage of the algorithm is that it requires less number of sensor nodes and saves the constructional cost of a wireless sensor network.
