Performance Analysis of Group Based Detection for Sparse Sensor Networks
Source: University of Virginia
In this paper, the authors analyze the performance of group based detection in sparse sensor networks, when the system level detection decision is made based on the detection reports generated from multiple sensing periods. Sparse deployment is essential for reducing cost of large scale sensor networks, which cover thousands of square miles. In a sparse deployment, the sensor field is only partially covered by sensors' sensing ranges, resulting in void sensing areas in the region, but all nodes are connected through multi-hop networking.
