A Network Topology Control Algorithm Based on Mobile Nodes

Huarui Wu, Li Zhu


Topology control is of great significance to reduce energy consumption of wireless sensor network nodes and prolong network lifetime. Different tasks taken by nodes may lead to node failures and fractures of data transmission links, hence undermining the overall network performance. In response to such problems, this paper presents a network topology control algorithm based on mobile nodes that fully considers node energy, node degree and network connectivity. Furthermore, a topology control model is established to analyze weak network topology areas and carry out local topology refactoring. Finally, a simulation experiment demonstrates that the presented algorithm is advantageous in balanced network energy consumption and network connectivity.
