|Title:||Self-Deployment Algorithms for Coverage Problem in a Network of Mobile Sensors with Unidentical Sensing Range|
|Published:||December 06, 2009|
|Abstract:||In this paper, efficient sensor deployment algorithms are proposed to improve the coverage area in the target field. The proposed algorithms calculate the position of the sensors iteratively based on the existing coverage holes in the target field. The multiplicatively weighted Voronoi diagram (MW-Voronoi diagram) is used to discover the coverage holes corresponding to different sensors with different sensing ranges. Under the proposed procedures, the sensors move in such a way that the coverage holes in the target field are reduced. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the deployment schemes proposed in this paper.|
