Detection of Optimal Path Using Quadratic Assigment Technique in Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of three nodes which are sensor nodes, intermediate nodes and destination nodes (sink). The function of sensors is to collect data from the physical environment and sending them to the sink. The intermediate nodes relay the data to the sink. After detection of an event, this data must be sent to the sink immediately. To send this data to the sink, there exist several paths in which finding a suitable path can improve the performance of the network.
