Wireless sensor networks are designed to detect underground abnormal conditions. Many protocols use distance between the nodes as one of the criteria for multi-hop communication in the network. Node Transmission Area (NTA) helps in predicting the location of the nodes and the distance between the nodes in many power optimization protocols. In this paper, Multi-hop Communication with Localization (MCL), a strategy to localize and route information to nodes present in such areas by determining angles and distances of consecutive nodes hop by hop towards the base station is proposed. Initially there is a group of nodes deployed in the underground areas all of which bound to a sink that is further connected to the base station.
