Neural Network Approach to Routing in Sensor Network


  • Michal Turčaník



Author presents a design of the artificial neural network for routing in the sensor network. The routing table is replaced by artificial neural network. The main aim is to realize this operation as fast as possible. In this paper author presents offline learning method and also real-time learning of the Artificial Neural Network (ANN). Offline learning regards to learning procedure on a general-purpose computing platform before the learned system is implemented in hardware. Real-time learning is done during the using of the system in the sensor network. Optimized neural network is implemented in the reconfigurable hardware. The paper concludes with possible future research areas.
