Sensors in most wireless sensor networks (WSNs) work with batteries as their energy source, it is usually infeasible to recharge or replace batteries when they discharge. Thus, solving the efficient-energy coverage (EEC) problem is an important issue for a WSN. Therefore, it is necessary to schedule the activities of the devices in a WSN to save the network's limited energy and prolong its lifetime. In this paper, we propose an ant-colony-based acheduling algorithm (ACB-SA) to solve the EEC… CONTINUE READING
