The problem of locating visual sensors can be often modelled as 2D Art Gallery problems. In particular, tasks such as surv eillance require observing the interior of a polygonal environment ( interior covering, IC), while for inspection or image based rendering observing the boundary ( edge covering, EC) is sufficient. Both problems are NP-hard, and no technique is known for transforming one problem into the other. Recently, an incremental algorithm for EC has been proposed, and its near… CONTINUE READING
