We are concerned with wireless sensor networks where n sensors are independently and uniformly distributed at random in a finite plane. Events that are within a fixed distance from some sensor are assumed to be detectable and the sensor is said to cover that point. In this paper, we have formulated an exact mathematical expression for the expected area that can be covered by at least k out of n sensors. Our results are important in predicting the degree of coverage a sensor network may provide… CONTINUE READING
