Decaying with the increasing of signal propagation distance, Received Signal Strength (RSS) is used in the wireless localization due to its low cost and easily implementation. When the transmit power is unavailable, two convex optimization algorithms including semi definite programming (SDP), second order cone and semi definite programming (SOC/SDP) are designed to estimate the source locations by relaxing the non-convex problem as convex optimization. The corresponding Cramér-Rao lower bound

However, the computational complexity of SOC/SDP is lower than that of the SDP due to the less variables and equality constraints. When perfect knowledge of the path loss exponent is available, the simulations also show that the accuracy performance of the proposed convex optimization algorithms degrades as the path loss exponent increases.
