A Distributed Energy-aware Trust Topology Control Algorithm for Service-Oriented Wireless Mesh Networks
1st International Conference on Swarm Intelligence, 2010-6-12 ~ 2010-6-15, pp 276-282, 2010
In this paper, we introduce the Energy-aware Trust Topology Control algorithm based on Ant colony approach (ETTC) that adapts the biological metaphor of Swarm Intelligence to control topology of wireless mesh networks. As trust is important to consider while forwarding packets, this paper propose a novel model that integrated the energy consumption and trust evaluation. The simulations of ETTC show the joint energy-aware and trust effect on the performance metrics such as network connectivity, node failure rate, etc.
