Abstract


To further study the basic principle and localization process of DV-Hop location algorithm, the location error reason of traditional location algorithm caused by the minimum hop number was analyzed and demonstrated in detail. The RSSI ranging technology was introduced to modify the minimum hops stage, and the minimum hop number was improved by the DV-Hop algorithm. For the location error caused by the average hop distance, the hop distance of the original algorithm was optimized. The improved location algorithm of DV-Hop average hop distance was used to modify the average range calculation by introducing the proportion of beacon nodes and the optimal threshold value. The optimization algorithm of the two different stages was combined into an improved location algorithm based on hop distance optimization, and the advantages of the two algorithms were taken into account.Finally, the traditional DV-Hop location algorithm and the three improved location algorithms were simulated and analyzed by beacon node ratio and node communication radius with multi angle. The experimental results showed that the improved algorithm was better than the original algorithm in the positioning stability and positioning accuracy.
