Abstract:
Spider web modeling in terms of web location, extent and design has been an active area of research to study spider behavior. In this talk, we apply the principles of spider web design to the localization problem in wireless sensor networks. Modeling the connectivity between sensor nodes as tension in the strands of a spider web, we can design algorithms inspired by the biological method that the spider uses to locate its prey.
The problem formulation, relevant convergence results and simulated performance are presented. The performance of the proposed approach is compared with extant approaches in literature. Further pointers are given to the future development of this biologically inspired approach.
