The presented paper discusses a viability of Vivaldi localization algorithm and synthetic coordinate system in general to be used for localization purposes in energy constraint networks. Synthetic coordinate systems achieve good results in IP based networks and thus, it could be a perspective way of node localization in other types of networks. However, transfer of Vivaldi algorithm into a different kind of network is a difficult task because the different basic characteristic of the network and network nodes. In this paper we focus on the different aspects of IP based networks and networks of wireless sensors which suffer from strict energy limitation. During our work we proposed a modified version of two dimensional Vivaldi localization algorithm with height system and developed a simulator tool for initial investigation of its function in ad-hoc energy constraint networks.
