Before a sensor network is deployed, it is important to determine how many sensors are required to achieve a certain level of coverage. The number of sensors required for maintaining k-coverage depends on the area of the monitored region, the probability that a node fails or powers off (to save energy), and the deployment strategy. In this paper, we derive the density required to maintain k-coverage under three deployment strategies: (i) nodes are deployed as a Poisson point process, (ii) nodes… CONTINUE READING
