Abstract:Due to long calculation time and slow convergence speed, Ant Colony System (ACS) cannot be used directly in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). In this paper, we present an improved ACS algorithm based on Altitude Information (AI) and Ant Withdrawal (AW), named ACSA (an improved ACS algorithm with AI). The concept of AI is defined, and the design philosophy, algorithm realization and performance simulation of ACSA are discussed. AI is a kind of global heuristic information correlated with the source and destinatio… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
