The use of mobile sensors is motivated by the necessity to mon itor critical areas where sensor deployment cannot be performed manually. In these working scenarios, sensors must adapt their initial positi on o reach a final deployment which meets some given performance objectives suc h as coverage extension and uniformity, total moving distance, number of me ssage exchanges and convergence rate. We propose an original algorithm for autonomous deployment of mobile sensors called SNAP & SPREAD… CONTINUE READING
