Abstract: Ant colony optimization algorithm is a way to be used to find the optimal solutions is enormous, the number of ants on the path, which will lead to reduced the network node on the path energy drastically. The wireless sensor network is a large number of tiny sensor nodes with communication and computing power. Using wireless sensor networks collaboration to perception, the perception of the object information acquisition and processing in the network coverage area, and send to the observer. This paper describes the basic principles and characteristics of the algorithm and the improved ant colony algorithm, ant colony algorithm in wireless sensor network node. The paper presents the optimization algorithm of wireless sensor network node based on improved ant colony. In order to verify the performance of the algorithm, the paper establishes a wireless sensor network simulation environment in Matlab.


Keywords: Ant colony, Wireless sensor network, Optimization.
