  • The deployment problem (DP) of a wireless sensor network (WSN) is no doubt a critical issue because the strategies it takes will not only strongly impact the overall performance but also the power consumed by the sensors in such a system. This means that a good solution to the deployment problem (DP) cannot just "enhance its performance," it can also "save the energy" to prolong the lifetime of a wireless sensor network (WSN). However, finding an optimum solution for most DPs with limited… CONTINUE READING
