A Self-organizing Wireless Sensor Networks Based on Quantum Ant Colony Evolutionary Algorithm

Lin-lin Wang, Chengliang Wang


Aiming at the coverage problem of self-organizing wireless sensor networks, a target coverage method for wireless sensor networks based on Quantum Ant Colony Evolutionary Algorithm (QACEA) is put forward. This method introduces quantum state vector into the coding of ant colony algorithm, and realizes the dynamic adjustment of ant colony through quantum rotation port. The simulation results show that the quantum ant colony evolutionary algorithm proposed in this paper can effectively improve the target coverage of wireless sensor networks, and has obvious advantages compared with the other two methods in detecting the number of targets and the convergence speed. Based on the above findings, it is concluded that the algorithm proposed plays an essential role in the improvement of target coverage and it can be widely used in the similar fields, which has great and significant practical value.
