Bottom Line: In the bottom level, each subpopulation employing the canonical ABC method searches the part-dimensional optimum in parallel, which can be constructed into a complete solution for the upper level.At the same time, the comprehensive learning method with crossover and mutation operators is applied to enhance the global search ability between species.The results demonstrate that the proposed HABC obtains remarkable performance on most chosen benchmark functions when compared to several successful swarm intelligence and evolutionary algorithms.

ABSTRACT
This paper presents a novel optimization algorithm, namely, hierarchical artificial bee colony optimization, called HABC, to tackle the radio frequency identification network planning (RNP) problem. In the proposed multilevel model, the higher-level species can be aggregated by the subpopulations from lower level. In the bottom level, each subpopulation employing the canonical ABC method searches the part-dimensional optimum in parallel, which can be constructed into a complete solution for the upper level. At the same time, the comprehensive learning method with crossover and mutation operators is applied to enhance the global search ability between species. Experiments are conducted on a set of 10 benchmark optimization problems. The results demonstrate that the proposed HABC obtains remarkable performance on most chosen benchmark functions when compared to several successful swarm intelligence and evolutionary algorithms. Then HABC is used for solving the real-world RNP problem on two instances with different scales. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm is superior for solving RNP, in terms of optimization accuracy and computation robustness.

Mentions: Note that the visual results of the RNP with other four single objects have similar trends, as shown in Figures 10–14. Figure 10 illustrates the result implemented by all algorithms with only considering the interference between readers. In this optimization mode, the algorithms aim to maintain sufficient distances between RFID readers. We can observe from Figure 10(b) that network operating condition deteriorates, without guaranteeing complete tag coverage rate while the objective function fi is perfectly optimized, because the readers are optimized to move away from each other and thus located far from high traffic areas for the purpose of minimizing the reader interference.
