Localization is one of the most important problems in wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we investigate the convergence rate estimate problem of a distributed localization algorithm which approximately formulates the localization problem as the convex feasibility problem including the consistent case and the inconsistent case. Although existing works established optimal consensus convergence analysis for this algorithm, they did not provide the convergence rate estimate. In this paper, we

Furthermore, numerical examples are also provided to validate the established convergence and convergence rate results.
