Network Lifetime And Energy Efficiency Maximization Using Ant Colony Optimization In WSN

[Full Text]

Keywords: WSN; Clustering; ACO; Ant Colony Optimization



ABSTRACT: Improving network lifetime is the significant challenge of wireless sensor networks. The possible way is to make use of mobile sinks. Sink mobility with a constrained path may improve the energy efficiency in wireless sensor network. Due to the path constrained problem , the communicating speed of mobile sink decreases . So it becomes difficult to improve the routing of data packets and to conserve energy. In this paper, Inter cluster ant colony optimization (ACO) data aggregation is used along with rendezvous points (RP) and mobile sink (MS). This proposed scheme will increase the network throughput and average remaining energy in highly deployed network .
