Abstract: Bat algorithm is a novel swarm intelligent algorithm inspired by the echolocation behaviour of bats. Pulse rate of emission is one important parameter, which is adjusted in an exponential manner in the standard version, however, this manner provides a fast convergent behaviour in the first several generations. With this manner, the exploitation capability is limited. In this paper, a new linear adjusted manner is employed to enhance the local search capability. To test the performance, it is applied to solve the optimal coverage problem of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Simulation results show it is effective when compared with the standard version of bat algorithm.

 

Keywords: adaptive bat algorithm; network coverage; wireless sensor networks; WSNs; WSN coverage; pulse emission rate; optimal coverage; optimisation; swarm intelligence; simulation.
