Coverage Control algorithm based on Ant colony algorithm in wireless sensor networks

Zeyu Sun, Yahui Yu


Coverage control can be transformed into optimization problem in many aspects. A new algorithm based on ant colony—ant colony algorithm has showed great strengths in large scale optimization problem. This paper solved the optimization problem in the area coverage and barrier coverage based on ant colony algorithm. An improved basic ant colony algorithm is proposed. Using this method the lever of algorithm complication is depressed and the searching time is reduced. It has strong ability in finding the best resolution and adapts to wireless sensor network. Finally, it proved that the reliability and validity of the algorithm comparing.
