It's a new and good method to apply wireless sensor networks on robot navigation. We proposed an environment map free navigation for robot based on wireless sensor networks. In this system, the robot did not need to obtain the environment map and can get online navigation. The wireless sensor nodes collected environment and position information and made distributed information fusing to give a path for the robot. The robot then communicated with the wireless sensor network and went through following network's order. To combine the shorter path and the safer path, we proposed a navigation cost method for robot's navigation. It makes know by analysis that the environment map free navigation algorithm for robot in wireless sensor networks can achieve an online navigation and get highly precise navigation.
