A performance evaluation method of wireless sensor networks based on gray theory is proposed. Firstly the influence factors of performance are analyzed, and the index set in evaluation of wireless sensor networks' performance is built which include index of key performance and reliable characteristics. Based on AHP and gray theory, a model of evaluation of wireless sensor networks performance is given. Finally the results of example show that the evaluation model is rationality and feasibility.
