The optimal placement of wireless sensors is very different from conventional wired sensor placement due to the limited transmission range of the wireless sensors. This constraint on the inter-sensor distance makes the optimization problem difficult to solve with conventional gradient-based methods. In this paper, an improved generalized genetic algorithm (GGA) based on a self-adaptive dynamic penalty function (SADPF) is proposed for the optimal wireless sensor placement (OWSP) in bridge… CONTINUE READING
