The location measurement technique of moving worker in dangerous areas, is necessary for safety in the mines, basements, warehouses, etc. There are various measurement techniques about moving node of position in a restricted environment. Trigonometric Method, one of measurement techniques, is commonly used because of its easiness. However, errors occur frequently when measuring distance and position due to radio interference and physical disability with measuring instruments. This paper proposed a method which is more accurate and shows reduced margin of error than existing trigonometric method by recalculating distance between Anchor and moving node with various measuring instruments. By adding Anchor when calculating distance and position of moving node`s estimated point, suggested technique obtains at least 41% efficiency compared to existing method.
