Reliability Prediction of Wireless Sensor Network Based on Neural Network
Reliability is one of key indexes of communication network system performance assessment, which is also main basis for network optimal design, network management and control. Based on definition of network node reliability and link reliability, the paper given description on Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) reliability assessment and presented a kind of WSN reliability prediction model and its learning algorithm of WSN based on RBF neural network. The method can accurately estimate network reliability according to reliability of network node and link under any topology of WSN. Simulation results show that the method is effective in the prediction of reliability of WSN.
