In recent years, there has been a growing interest in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) due to its wide range of potential applications. They are now used in many industrial and civilian application areas, including industrial process monitoring and control, machine health monitoring, environment and habitat monitoring, health care applications, home automation and traffic control. In civilian scenarios, sensors used to monitor traffic or pollution. In terms of the most basic military applications, such networks can be used to detect, classify, and track targets in a given territory. Today, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) pose a number of challenging optimization problems.
