Improved Wireless Sensor Location Algorithm Based on Combined Particle Swarm-Quasi-Newton with Threshold N

Hongqiang Zhang, Chunhong Wang


this paper drills down and systematically analyzes the improved DV-Hop algorithm about the origin of its position errors. A new method is hereby given for modifying such position errors. Beyond that, the particle swarm-quasi-Newton algorithm is improved, intercepting the combined DV-Hop location algorithm according to the number of known nodes which has been defined by a threshold N. The coordinate of unknown nodes is calculated and analyzed by the combined particle swarm-quasi-Newton algorithm. Then this paper makes a validation analysis on the results by the way of emulation. The results show that the improved algorithm is relatively superior with high precision and lower position error than improved DV-Hop as intercepted.
