In this paper, the authors investigate the problem of localizing submerged sensors and provide a new mechanism to determine the coordinates and bearing of those sensors using only one beacon node. In Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs), precise coordinates of the sensors that actuate or collect data is vital, as data without the knowledge of its actual origin has limited value. Mostly, the multi-lateration technique is used to determine the location of the sensors with respect to three or more known beacon nodes, besides incorporated nonlinear distance equations are solved in conventional method whereby degree-of-freedom does not guarantee a unique solution.
