Abstract: A wireless sensor network (WSN) is playing a vital role in monitoring a wide variety of real-world phenomenon. Capability of WSNs is further enhanced by the efficient localisation algorithms. Location information is essential for integrating the various applications of WSNs. Localisation is the process by which a sensor node determines its own location after deployment. Soft computing techniques are gaining popularity in evolving new localisation algorithms that are capable of optimising various parameters of WSNs. In this paper, a comprehensive review is presented to understand the role of fuzzy logic, genetic algorithm, and neural network in localisation of nodes in WSNs.
