There has been a rise in research interest in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) due to the potential for his or her widespread use in many various areas like home automation, security, environmental monitoring, and lots more. Wireless sensor network (WSN) localization is a very important and fundamental problem that has received a great deal of attention from the WSN research community. Determining the relative coordinate of sensor nodes within the network adds way more aiming to sense data. The research community is extremely rich in proposals to deal with this challenge in WSN. This paper explores the varied techniques proposed to deal with the acquisition of location information in WSN. In the study of the research paper finding the performance in WSN and those techniques supported the energy consumption in mobile nodes in WSN, needed to implement the technique and localization accuracy (error rate) and discuss some open issues for future research. The thought behind Internet of things is that the interconnection of the Internet-enabled things or devices to every other and human to realize some common goals. WSN localization is a lively research area with tons of proposals in terms of algorithms and techniques. Centralized localization techniques estimate every sensor node's situation on a network from a central Base Station, finding absolute or relative coordinates (positioning) with or without a reference node, usually called the anchor (beacon) node. Our proposed method minimization error rate and finding the absolute position of nodes.
