Abstract: Wireless sensor networks spread everywhere in our daily life from health care to environment monitoring. In these applications sensor positioning plays a crucial role. The existing sensor positioning techniques are resulted in increased cost, energy consumption, connectivity failure and less accuracy. In the present work, Range-free sensor positioning based on Bacterial Foraging Algorithm is applied to reduce energy consumption by sensor nodes in hexagonal geographical area. The results are compared with Artificial Bee Colony algorithm. The results show, the improvement in accuracy, shortest path computation, residual energy, and an energy efficient wireless sensor network and the proposed method is implemented using NS-2.
Keywords: Sensor Positioning, RSPBFA, Shortest path, Residual Energy and Energy Consumption.
Scope of the Article: Wireless ad hoc & Sensor Networks
