Hierarchical Deployment Optimization for Wireless Sensor Networks

  title={Hierarchical Deployment Optimization for Wireless Sensor Networks},
  author={Xue Wang and Sheng Wang},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing},
Sensor nodes deployment is very crucial for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Current methods are apt to enlarge the coverage by achieving a nearly even deployment with similar density in the whole network. However, in some specific applications, the even distribution may not satisfy the sensing requirements. This paper proposes a virtual force directed coevolutionary particle swarm optimization (VFCPSO) algorithm, which uses a combined objective function to achieve the tradeoff of coverage and… CONTINUE READING
