Research on Fault-Tolerant Relay Node Placement Based on Greedy Optimization Algorithm in Wireless Sensor Networks
In this paper, relay node’s communication capacity was introduced into the existing model of relay node placement. And we presented a new evaluation standard based on the minimum distance factor of communication network. A new relay node placement algorithm was implemented in solutions, and the algorithm was based on greedy optimization algorithm. The simulation result demonstrates that the algorithm can limit the communication capacity of relay nodes conveniently. Compared with other placement algorithms, improvement of energy-efficiencies in this algorithm is obvious.
