In this paper, we has implemented the localization algorithm through RSSI and AOA of Zigbee. The RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) method is used for the localization of Zigbee and affected a lot by intensity, distance and interruption of signals. The combined algorithm of AOA (Angle of Arrival) and RSSI has been designed and implemented to make up the weaknesses of RSSI. As long as we knew, although the previous system has been implemented and used through the UWB (Ultra Wide-Band) or CSS communication methods, the firstly implemented system is the location recognition algorithm through RSSI and AOA of Zigbee. In this paper has obtained the result from the repeated tests to achieve the measurement of location with the accuracy of average 35 ~ 36 cm when the suggested system was placing the beacon on the four corners of 2 dimensional rectangular space with 4m wide and 2m long, and the receiver on the random space.
