Node localization is an important problem for location-dependent applications of wireless sensor networks. Aiming at the positioning problem of wireless sensor networks node location, an improved DV-Hop localization algorithm is proposed in this paper. The proposed method firstly recalculates the hop-size and sends different correction along different directions instead of computing a single correction to be broadcasted into the networks. Then we empirically evaluate the difference between distance estimate and actual distance through a number of simulation experiments statistical results. We find empirical parameter to improve the accuracy of distance estimate. Simulation results show that the performance of the proposed scheme outweighs classical DV-Hop algorithms, especially in lower connectivity.
