Transforming Complete Coverage Algorithms to Partial Coverage Algorithms for Wireless Sensor Networks

This work proposes a framework which can transform almost any existing complete Coverage Algorithm to a partial coverage one with any coverage ratio by running a complete coverage algorithm to find full coverage sets with virtual radii and converting the coverage sets to partial coverage sets via adjusting sensing radii.

Connected Coverage Protocol Using Cooperative Sensing Model for Wireless Sensor Networks

Simulation results show that the active node number employed in the cooperative sensing model to provide the desired QoC of networks is less than that of the binary sensing model, and the SCA policy not only provides the desiredQoC and connectivity of networks, but also reduces the total energy consumption and balances the energy dissipation among nodes.
