Sensing coverage is defined as the ratio of the sensible area to the entire desired area. It is one of the critical measures of performance or service quality offered by a sensor network. In previous studies, the sensing range of a node is generally assumed to be a deterministic value in all directions. In realistic environments, the sensing range of a node is not a constant because of shadowing effects. Recent studies are focused on the sensing coverage for WSNs in shadowed environments. But… CONTINUE READING
