Abstract: Future generation communication systems are aiming to provide a tremendous high data rate with low-latency high reliable and three-dimensional coverage. To achieve such a challenging goal, it is required to have very precise location information related to the mobile terminal. The advancement of signal processing techniques and communication technologies enables the path for improving localization performance. Recently, intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) has been widely considered as the key element for the future generation of wireless communication. Over the past few years, the performance of IRS-assisted networks is extensively investigated from the point of view of communication purposes and its improvement. However, by virtue of its potential, IRS finds its application for wireless localization. In this paper, we discuss and summarize the works that have already been carried out targeting localization performance improvement. In addition, we figured out the associated challenges and the opportunities to scale up the localization accuracy. Particularly in this paper, the authors have discussed the challenging issues such as channel modeling, channel estimation, system architecture, hardware impairment, IRS deployment strategies, phase optimization, mobility management, and near-field environments. Although these challenges are associated with opportunities to make the IRS-assisted system more effective and efficient.
