Research and Application on Monitoring Technology of Structural Health Based on Wireless Sensor Networks
In this paper, we researched the monitoring technology of structural health which based on wireless sensor networks, and combined with the characteristics of structures, we designed a wireless sensor network monitoring systems, then the composition and topology of wireless sensor networks was proposed. At last, we used the improved ant colony algorithm to develop network energy-saving strategy which parameters are the energy of wireless sensor nodes, resized using node energy to control the routing between nodes, effectively reducing the energy consumption of wireless sensor monitoring network. The simulation result proved that the algorithm is effective, reliable and energy-saving effect.
