Energy-Efficient Probabilistic Full Coverage in Wireless Sensor Networks
It is a common class of applications with wireless sensor network to provide full coverage to the Region Of Interest (ROI), such as environment monitoring, military detection and agricultural observation. Existing literatures on full coverage are mostly based on the binary sensing model to simplify the problem. However, the results are far from the reality since binary sensing model as a coarse approximation is too conservative. The probabilistic sensing model has been proposed as a more realistic model to characterize the sensing region.
