Abstract – The main role of WSN is to collect information from various resources and to transfer them to the destination. The important thing is to know the location of the destination, which can be obtained through localization technique in WSN. It is highly desirable to design efficient, low-cost and measurable localization mechanism for under water acoustic WSN. Mostly, in under water acoustic WSN the time and efficiency of the sensors are inversely proportional to each other. If a sensor node takes much time to transmit an information, the efficiency will be reduced due to its low bandwidth capacity. Previous  approaches have implemented schemes to reduce the localization time but they are not much efficient and so packet scheduling is not proper. Moreover it does not provide exact information about proper delivery of data. In order to overcome this challenges this project reduces the localization time to a great extend using L-MAC-IS. It remedies the demerits of the existing method and provides better performance over localization and enhances network lifetime.

Keywords— localization, scheduling, enhanced lifetime
