In this paper, the authors evaluate the performance of a quasi-random deployment strategy for wireless sensor networks on the basis of the application invoked for tree based communication networks. The quasi random deployment strategy tries to combine the benefits of both random and deterministic approaches for effective coverage and connectivity. They adopt Halton sequence to generate the node placement co-ordinates and study the features and effects on the network traffic, the total carried load, the amount of delay incurred and the energy consumption under the IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
