Localization challenges researchers for its contradictive goals, i.e., how to tackle the problem of minimizing energy consumption as well as maintaining localization precision, which are two essential trade-offs in wireless sensor network systems. In this paper, the authors propose an Energy-Efficient Opportunistic Localization (EEOL) scheme to satisfy the requirement of positional accuracy and power consumption. They explore the idea of opportunistic wakeup probability to wake up an appropriate numbers of sensor nodes, while ensuring the high positional accuracy. Sensor nodes can be triggered by the opportunistic wakeup probability sent from the user.
