Low Cost Locating Method of Wireless Sensor Network in Precision Agriculture

Open access


The wireless sensor network covers more scale with more sensor nodes for larger scale agriculture. The article describes improvement of DV-Hop Algorithm to locate the nodes with quadrilateral range positioning method, so that the difficulty of dilatation method in agriculture actual application to be solved. The analog test for the algorithm is conducted and is mainly developed for the average locating error with illustration and discussion on the proportion relations of average error, average connectivity and anchor nodes. According to the analog results, the algorithm obtains better effect on the average locating error, which improves the accuracy of the algorithm.
