A Genetic Approach to Solve the Charging Scheduling Problem for Wireless Rechargable Sensor Networks
Rechargeable wireless sensor networks get the focus of attention recently for wireless charging technology’s rapid
progress. Since the loading of each sensor is different, the speed of energy depletion of sensors is different too. Thus, to obtain
a feasible charging route, not onlyshould the moving distance of the charging device be minimized to save its energy, but also
all the sensors should be charged in time, so that the whole network can work correctly. In this paper, a genetic approach is
proposed to solve this complex problem. The preliminary simulation results show that the proposed approach can get the
feasible charging route as expected.
