Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been attracting the attention of both academic and industrial research communities for the past few years. To find an optimal topology control strategy in 3-dimensional (3D) WSNs is a new challenge. In this paper, we discuss issues related to the topology control in 3D WSNs, review a 2D model for WSNs, and introduce a 3D model for WSNs. An Immunity-Based Ant Colony Optimization Topology Control Algorithm for 3D WSNs is introduced, which has better performance with the nature of feedback and paradigm of ant colony and immunity algorithm reducing the redundancy iteration. The advantage of both the Ant Colony Optimization algorithm (ACO) and Connected Dominating Set (CDS) are fully taken in this algorithm. Simulation results show that the CDS-ACO has the better performance in WSNs.


Keywords: Topology control, Three dimensional, Wireless sensor networks, Immunity-based ant colony optimization, Connected dominating set
