Abstract (Summary of the Work)

In this report we present an efficient algorithm for finding Location of an object explorer in a given terrain with the help of some known sensor nodes under the assumption that all the reflections are specular. We present a geometric algorithm for location estimation, the running time of the algorithm is O(n log n + K) with O(n) space, where n is the number of reflecting surfaces in the terrain and K is a constant which depends on the complexity of the terrain.
