Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are tremendously being used in different environments to perform various monitoring tasks such as search, rescue, disaster relief, target tracking and a number of tasks in smart environments. For example wireless sensors nodes can be designed to detect the ground vibrations generated by silent footsteps of a burglar and trigger an alarm. In many difficult and complex tasks, node localization is very important and critical step to fulfill the purpose of WSN. This project was conducted on the basis of localization of sensor nodes in the scope of GPS-free localizations schemes. We firstly investigated the current localization techniques in wireless scenario for the aim of designing a GPS-free localization scheme based on the local coordinate system formation. A multidimensional scaling method based on dynamic curvilinear belt structure and cooperative localization method was used in this project. Then a simulation result and comparison were carried in MATLAB. The vast majority of current materials on spot discovery in WSNs reflect some beacon nodes with known place. Their spots are then used to look for the positions connected with other normal sensor nodes. Manual rating and configuration means of obtaining spot don't scale and are also error-prone, and equipping sensors with GPS is normally expensive and rule isn't followed in indoor and urban environment. As such, sensor sites can therefore gain from a selfsetting up method where nodes cooperate with each other, estimate nearby distances on their neighbors, and converge to some consistent organize system containing only translation freedom.
