In wireless sensor networks the Nodes are mobility enabled, since the communication among nodes fully depend on the distance between nodes and time taken to transmit the data packets. Any routing protocols suggesting the shortest path based route formation is the best concept for fast and safe transmission and it improves the QoS of the WSN in terms of speed and accuracy. Without locating the nodes and the accurate distance, the shortest path finding is inefficient. In this paper a novel Localization approach is introduced to localize the nodes accurately with the help of Beacon Nodes in the network. The simulation results produced better performance than the existing systems
