Different Node Deployments in a Square Area Grid of Wireless Sensor Network and Optimal Number of Relays
Wireless sensor networks deployment is an important issue to be considered when trying to cover an area with sensors, the authors' work focuses on the deployment of a grid network for larger number of sensor nodes from 36 nodes up to 100 nodes. They study different cases of distances between source an destination, the result showed the diagonal path is the best path where least energy consumption are consumed. The diagonal path use number of intermediate nodes (relays) along it. Their result show the best number of relay nodes and different distances between source node and destination node according to some threshold distances.
