When performing measurements in an outdoor field environment, various interference factors occur. So, many studies have been performed to increase the accuracy of the localization. This paper presents a novel probability-based approach to estimating position based on Apollonius circles. The proposed algorithm is a modified method of existing trilateration techniques. This method does not need to know the exact transmission power of the source and does not require a calibration procedure. The proposed algorithm is verified in several typical environments, and simulation results show that the proposed method outperforms existing algorithms.
