Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: In order to serve for the ecological monitoring efficiency of Poyang Lake, an improved hybrid algorithm, mixed with differential evolution and particle swarm optimization, is proposed and applied to optimize the coverage problem of wireless sensor network. And then, the affect of the population size and the number of iterations on the coverage performance are both discussed and analyzed. The four kinds of statistical results about the coverage rate are obtained through lots of simulation experiments.


Keywords: Differential evolution, Hybrid algorithm, Coverage optimization, Wireless sensor network, Particle swarm optimization.
