Localization of mult i-agent systems is a fundamental requirement for mu lti-agent systems to operate and cooperate properly. The problem of localization can be divided into two categories; one in which a -p riori informat ion is available and the second where the global position is to be asce rtained without a-priori informat ion. This paper gives a comprehensive survey of localization techniques that exist in the literature for both the categories with the objectives of knowing the current

A detailed description of methods that exist in the literature are provided in considerable detail. Then these methods are compared, and their weaknesses and strengths are discussed. Finally, so me future research recommendations are drawn out of this survey.
