On optimal route of a calibrating mobile sink in a wireless sensor network

By Sudarsanan Nesamony, Madhan Karky Vairamuthu and Maria E. Orlowska


In a wireless sensor network containing fixed positioned sensor nodes and a sink node that moves around the sensor field calibrating the sensors, the problem of computing the optimal route for the sink is evolved. In this paper, the determination of such a route is formulated and defined as problem belonging to the class of Travelling Salesperson Problems. The complexity being NF-Hard, the problem is solved by reducing it to an instance of the well known Travelling Salesperson Problem with Neighbourhoods
