Cavill DSouza, Shreyans Mulkutkar, Kinn Savla, Sanjay Gandhe . Particle Swarm Optimization Based Methodology for Node Placement in Wireless Sensor Networks. International Conference and Workshop on Emerging Trends in Technology. ICWET, 14 (None 2011), 8-14.
In this paper a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) based technique for generating a heterogeneous network configuration comprising assignment of shouters and whisperers to available node positions is proposed. The generated network configuration is optimized to obtain desired network characteristics. The proposed technique is compared with contemporary evolutionary techniques such as Genetic Algorithms (GA) for performance.
