Providing an efficient localization system is one of the most important goals to be pursued if an efficient utilization of sensor networks has to be addressed. This paper proposes a novel localization system based on Kohonen 's self organizing maps (SOMs), able to provide some Artificial Intelligence features to sensor nodes. A SOM is a particular neural network that learns to classify data without any supervision. In each sensor node, a SOM is implemented to evaluate the sensor node position, using a very little amount of storage and computing resources. In a scenario where thousands of sensor nodes are placed, this system evaluates the position of each sensor in a distributed manner, assuming a very little percentage of nodes knowing their actual position.
