A New Method for Reliability Evaluation of Wireless Sensor Networks Based on Fuzzy Neural Network

Jianjun Xu


In this paper, a reliability evaluation model based on fuzzy neural network is proposed to evaluate the reliability of wireless sensor networks without a unified standard. Firstly, the reliability is analyzed from the point of view of topology structure, protocol stack structure and reliability mechanism of wireless sensor network, and the performance indexes that affect the reliability are extracted. Secondly, some performance indexes are screened out, and the standard value matrix of reliability evaluation for index fuzzy quantization is established. The sample data is generated by interpolation, and the reliability evaluation model based on fuzzy neural network is established. The neural network model takes the selected index values as input, and outputs are the reliability of the wireless sensor network. The simulation results show that the evaluation model is basically consistent with the actual situation, and it can evaluate the wireless sensor network from the system level.
