  • Conference paper

Part of the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology book series (IFIPAICT,volume 368)


Based on the analysis of the present situation and features of local wireless network, combined the networking technologies, we constructing the wireless network layout algorithm and sensor nodes model. Through delaminating iterative optimization algorithm, optimal layout of sensor data collection and satisfy recognition, quasi-geoids orientation, signal coverage optimization have been realized. Compared the triangular, square and hexagon scheme, and get a general scheme of multiple complete coverage by calculate the length of sides on the polygon. Monte Carlo algorithm is used in choosing the optimum proposal comparing among the regular triangle, square and the hexagon in different conditions. For locating network, analyze the advantages and disadvantages of triangle, square and hexagon schemes in deferent positioning accuracy of double coverage, we set different layout schemes to different situations. Application manual is provided for the constructor to refer to these table lookup to attain the right numerical value.
