In ubiquitous sensor networks, the estimation accuracy of a node location is limited due to the presence of non-line-of-sight (NLOS) paths. To mitigate the NLOS effects, this letter proposes a simple algorithm where NLOS identification is carried out using angle-of-arrival (AOA). Simulation results show that the use of AOA improves NLOS identification rates and location estimation accuracy.
