Abstract
This paper mainly provides one new nature inspired Energy Conversation Optimization (ECO) method to search for the optimal sensor position of sensor network in the typical tunnels, fully covering the tunnel and dynamically locating the high-speed train in the tunnel. Firstly, one objective of this study is to briefly introduce the framework of transmitting the sensor's data in the railway network, the objectives and the constraints of the optimal coverage problem. Secondly, another objective of this paper is to provide some fundamental assumptions and concepts of ECO algorithm, together with the corresponding convergence analysis and the main steps of ECO algorithm. Additionally, the ECO algorithm is mainly utilized to address the optimal tunnel coverage problem. Numerical results mainly concentrate on the effectiveness of ECO algorithm comparing with the PSO algorithm and deal with four typical optimal coverage problems in the presence of the line tunnel, the indirect line tunnel and the complicated tunnels, etc. Finally, the ECO algorithm can offer the guideline for the smallest number of sensors and the corresponding positions in the given tunnel, fully covering the whole tunnel and providing the location of high-speed trains.
