Abstract: The optimal coverage problem plays an important role in wireless sensor networks. In this paper a new swarm intelligent technique, Social Emotional Optimisation Algorithm (SEOA), is used to solve the problem based on the probability measuring model. In SEOA, each individual represents a virtual person, and selects the behaviour according to the corresponding emotion index in each iteration. Simulation results showed that the effective coverage has reached 99.98%.

Keywords: social emotional optimisation; optimal coverage; wireless sensor networks; WSNs; wireless networks; swarm intelligence; emotion index; simulation.
