Abstract: To achieve effective communication in ad hoc sensor networks, researchers have been working on finding a minimum connected dominating set (MCDS) as a virtual backbone network in practice. Presently, many approximate algorithms have been proposed to construct MCDS, the best among which is adopting the two-stage idea, that is, to construct a maximum independent set (MIS) firstly and then realize the connectivity through the Steiner tree construction algorithm. For the first stage, this paper proposes an improved collaborative coverage algorithm for solving maximum independent set (IC-MIS), which expands the selection of the dominating point from two-hop neighbor to three-hop neighbor. The coverage efficiency has been improved under the condition of complete coverage. For the second stage, this paper respectively proposes an improved Kruskal–Steiner tree construction algorithm (IK–ST) and a maximum leaf nodes Steiner tree construction algorithm (ML-ST), both of which can make the result closer to the optimal solution. Finally, the simulation results show that the algorithm proposed in this paper is a great improvement over the previous algorithm in optimizing the scale of the connected dominating set (CDS).
