Executive Summary

Ad-hoc networks of devices and sensors with (limited) sensing and wireless communication capabilities are becoming increasingly available for commercial and military applications. The first step in deploying these wireless sensor networks is to determine, with respect to application-specific performance criteria, (i) in the case that the sensors are static, where to deploy or activate them; and (ii) in the case that (a subset of) the sensors are mobile, how to plan the trajectory of the mobile sensors. These two cases are collectively termed as the coverage problem in wireless sensor networks.
