In recent years, the development in WSN is exponentially growing. Recently, there has been a lot of emphasis on mobile sensor networks, capable of monitoring their movements. Mobility attenuates problems in coverage and connection in the network. This paper profoundly surveys on localization and taxonomy of mobile sensors.
