Localization is a vital foundation in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). However, most previous localization methods assume an idealistic radio propagation model that is far from reality. This will lead to inaccurate localization, since unknown nodes cannot receive enough location messages under the radio irregularity model. In the authors' previous work "LMAT", they solved the path planning problem of the mobile anchor node without taking into account radio irregularity. This paper further studies how localization performance is affected by radio irregularity. In order to improve localization accuracy, the anchor node's radio range is adjusted to guarantee that all unknown nodes can receive sufficient localization information.
