This paper introduces a centralized approach to data gathering and communication for wireless sensor networks. Inspired by the social behaviors of ants, we clearly partition the work for the base station and sensor nodes according to their different functions and capabilities. A near-optimal chain is achieved by using an ant colony optimization method ruing in the base station. The sensor nodes in the network then form a bi-direction chain structure, which is self-adaptive to any minor changes… CONTINUE READING
