Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are poised to significantly enhance a number of missions in the military, civilian, and industrial arenas. Recently, there has been a significant interest in the design of algorithms for exploiting sensor mobility. The motivation of these designs is mainly to enhance coverage in the deployment field. Broadly speaking, there are three standard notions of coverage in sensor networks: blanket, barrier, and event coverage. Blanket coverage refers to the case where every point in the ...
