A Self-Deployment Obstacle Avoidance (SOA) Algorithm for Mobile Sensor Networks

A mobile sensor network is a distributed collection of nodes, each of which has sensing, computing, communicating, and locomotion capabilities. This paper presents a Self-deployment Obstacle Avoidance (SOA) algorithm for mobile sensor networks. The proposed SOA algorithm provides full coverage and can be efficiently used in a complex, unstable, and unknown environment. Moreover, the SOA algorithm is implemented based on the assumption that nodes are randomly deployed near the sink where each node knows the location of the target.
