Natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms and fire scenes can led to the failure of many nodes simultaneously in wireless sensor network, leaving behind multiple isolated network segments. Establishing connectivity among different segments is possible by deploying relay nodes. There are couples of challenges in the deployments mechanism, i.e., how many relay nodes will be sufficient and where these relay nodes should be placed. For a scenario, with known information about segmented network… CONTINUE READING
