This chapter introduces node localization techniques in ad-hoc networks including received signal strength (RSS), time-of-arrival (TOA) and direction-of-arrival (DOA). Wireless channels in ad-hoc networks can be categorized as LOS and NLOS. In LOS channels, the majority of localization techniques perform properly. However, in NLOS channels, the performance of these techniques reduces. Therefore, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) identification and mitigation techniques, and localization techniques for NLOS scenarios are briefly reviewed.
