Barrier coverage with wireless sensors

  title={Barrier coverage with wireless sensors},
  author={Santosh Kumar and Ten-Hwang Lai and Anish Arora},
In old times, castles were surrounded by moats (deep trenches filled with water, and even alligators) to thwart or discourage intrusion attempts. One can now replace such barriers with stealthy and wireless sensors. In this paper, we develop theoretical foundations for laying barriers of wireless sensors. We define the notion of k-barrier coverage of a belt region using wireless sensors. We propose efficient algorithms using which one can quickly determine, after deploying the sensors, whether… CONTINUE READING
