More is More: The Benefits of Denser Sensor Deployment


Positioning disk-shaped sensors to optimize certain coverage parameters is a fundamental problem in ad hoc sensor networks. The hexagon lattice arrangement is known to be optimally efficient in the plane, even though 20.9% of the area is unnecessarily covered twice, however, the arrangement is very rigid—any movement of a sensor from its… (More)
