The Coverage Problem in Wireless Sensor Networks by Holonic Multi-Agent Approach

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A wireless sensor network will collaborate for a common application such as environmental monitoring. One fundamental issue in sensor networks is the coverage problem. The authors present in this paper a Holonic Multi-agent approach that solves the coverage problem when using wireless sensor networks. Complex systems are characterized by large number of entities in interaction, exhibiting emergent behaviors. The holons in holonic multi-agent systems are not required to coordinate the work of a physical resource, but instead may coordinate the work of several information agents that only exist virtually.
