Wireless sensor network (WSN) has become one of the most important technologies because of its reliable remote monitoring ability. As sensors are often deployed at remote and/or hazardous environments, it is important to be able to perform faulty sensor nodes self-diagnosing. In this paper, we formulate WSN faulty nodes identification as a pattern classification problem. This paper uses semi-supervised method for faulty sensor nodes classification. To enhance the learning performance, we also introduce a label propagation mechanism which is based on local kernel density estimation. The basic concept of the method is to estimate the posterior probability of a scene that belongs to normal or different faulty modes. In this paper, we implemented a software platform to study WSN under different number of sensor nodes and faulty conditions. Our experimental results show the proposed semi-supervised method is highly effective. Thorough comparative analyses with other state-of-art semi-supervised learning methods were included. The obtained results confirmed that our proposed algorithm can deliver improved classification performance for WSN.
