Wireless sensor networks are dependent on sending and receiving signals; the system will not be capable of functioning if communication between sensors is not established. Localisation is one of the most important functions in this technology to localise nodes, events or the data source. In this study, we present a new method for outdoor randomly distributed nodes with no need for any excess devices, such as GPS devices or directional anten- nas or ultrasonic sensors. The method is based on using only the simple node component to provide the node and event position and has the ability to adapt mobility and scalability without affecting network functionality. All of the results are based on an ideal environment.
