A Localization Algorithm of Wireless Sensor Network Based on Statistical Uncorrelated Vector

Min Wang


For exploring wireless sensor network - a self-organized network, a new node location algorithm based on statistical uncorrelated vector (SUV) model, namely SUV location algorithm, is proposed. The algorithm, by translating the node coordinate, simplifies the solution to double center coordinate matrix, and gets the coordinate inner product matrix; then it uses statistical uncorrelated vectors to reconstruct the coordinates of the inner product matrix and remove the correlation of inner matrix of coordinates caused by the ranging error, so as to reduce the impact of ranging error on subsequent positioning accuracy. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm does not consider the network traffic, bust still has good performance in localization. At last, it is concluded that reducing the amount of communication of sensor nodes is beneficial to prolong the service life of the sensor nodes, thus increasing the lifetime of the whole network.
