This paper aims the development of a new reduced-cost algorithm for a multi-objective robust transmitter placement under uncertainty. Toward this end, we propose a new hybrid Kriging/Grey Wolf Optimizer (GWO) approach combined with robust design optimization to estimate the set of Pareto frontier by searching robustness as well as accuracy (lower objective function) in a design space. We consider minimization of the energy power consumption for transmitting as well as maximization of signal coverage in a multi-objective robust optimization model. The reliability of the model to control signal overlap for multiple transmitting antennas is also provided. To smooth computational cost, the proposed method instead of evaluating all receiver test points in each optimization iteration approximates signal coverages using Kriging interpolation to obtain optimal transmitter positions. The results demonstrate the utility and the efficiency of the proposed method in rendering the robust optimal design and analyzing the sensitivity of the transmitter placement problem under practically less-expensive computational efforts (350% and 320% less than computational time elapsed using standalone GWO and NSGAII respectively).
