Abstract -
The Acoustic Sensor Network has became the major impact in the field of wild life ecology and sensor network technology, according to the Naturalists. Under the ring topology, each sensor node can transmit and receive the information within circularly covered area of 3 kms in thick forests, situated in and around coimbatore. The primary goal of our proposed methodology is to determine the direction and location of the elephant within the vicinity of any village using hyperbolic circular array algorithm and results are implemented using MAT LAB Wave too1 8.1. The secondary goal is to identify the different external factors that affect the sensor network coverage area and also to estimate the error analysis report and error rectification methods. The simulation results shows that, there seems to be an error occured in some of the specific cases and which is to be rectified using the Nearest Neighbouring algorithm for identifying the location of the elephant with respect to minimum distance between source and sensor.The necessity of doing this research is to avoid the collision between human beings and elephants and also to protect both communities.
