Estimation and Evaluation of Deployment Models for Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors present the estimation and evaluation of deployment models for sensor networks that exploit different amounts of a-priori information. Topologies generated from the models exhibit minimum energy consumption at maximum sensing coverage. The applied energy model makes use of measurements obtained from real experiments. They consider general sets of interesting points in the phenomena since those exhibit most of the information content. The estimated models lead to significantly optimized initial network deployments which can be subsequently used with other existing optimization techniques. Overall the energy-efficiency, sensing coverage and operational lifetime of WSNs are strongly improved by their suggested deployment model.
