Localized Positioning Method for Optimization Path Availability Clustering Algorithm in Ad Hoc Network

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 235)


We propose the energy-efficient routing range-free based on the distance information parameters considering Ad hoc network Localized Positioning System (ALPS) algorithm. This paper suggests the ALPS algorithm for hierarchical cluster units to provide location information for the proposal method. The proposed algorithm is also to provide the position for final purpose of the study based on the location parameters generating. The conventional DV-hop is compared with optimized energy consumption for sustainable path algorithm in this paper works.
