Study of Complex Network Optimization in Wireless Sensor Networks
Energy consumption is a critical problem in operation of wireless sensor networks. For the sake of avoiding the data abundance and balancing the energy consumption in wireless sensor networks, this paper makes a research on network nodes Optimization in wireless sensor network based on ant colony algorithm and WIA-PA protocol stack. The novel design improved on hardware and software to control consumption of the energy and used transition probability of ant colony algorithm from one node to the other to calculate and determine the optimal path of network node in traversal of these locations. The results of the examples show that this method has lower energy consumption, computational briefness and higher positioning accuracy; it can not easily run into the local optimum, and also be applied to other tracking of complex network systems.
