Positioning plays an important role in wireless sensor networks. As a low-cost and low-power location approach, the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) algorithm is widely used in wireless sensor networks location. However, the RSSI value is usually affected by environment conditions, easily leading to a large error. To eliminate the influence of environmental factors, and to improve positioning accuracy, this paper uses the symmetrical characteristics in electromagnetic wave propagation to design a location method to calculate the position of the node. The proposed method is tested with simulation experiments in MATLAB and the test results show that the new location method has a high positioning accuracy.
