Abstract: Wireless sensor network applications have been deployed widely. Sensor networks involve sensor nodes which are very small in size. They are low in cost, and have a low battery life. Sensor nodes are capable of solving a variety of collaborative problems, such as, monitoring and surveillance. One of the critical components in wireless sensor networks is the localizing tracking sensor or mobile node. In this paper we will discuss the various location system techniques and categorize these techniques based on the communication between nodes into centralized and decentralized localization techniques. The tracking techniques are categorized into four main types. Each type will be compared and discussed in detail. We will suggest ways of implementing the techniques and finally carry out an evaluation.
