The wireless sensor network (WSN) has received increasing attention since it has many potential applications such as the internet of things and smart city. The localization technology is critical for the application of the WSN. The obstacles induce the larger non-line of sight (NLOS) error and it may decrease the localization accuracy. In this paper, we mainly investigate the non-line of sight localization problem for WSN. Firstly, the Pearson's chi-squared testing is employed to identify the propagation condition. Secondly, the particle swarm optimization based localization method is proposed to estimate the position of unknown node. Finally the simulation experiments are implemented. The simulation results show that the proposed method owns higher localization accuracy when compared with other two methods.
