Deployment is a fundamental issue in wireless sensor networks. Usually the sensor locations are precomputed based on a "Perfect" sensor coverage model, whereas sensors may not always provide reliable information, either due to operational tolerance levels or environmental factors. Therefore, it is imperative to have practical considerations at the design stage to anticipate this sensing behavior. In this paper, the authors address four different forms of static wireless sensor networks deployment while considering an evidence-based sensor coverage model.
