We investigate cascade dynamics in thresholdcontrolled (multiplex) propagation on random geometric networks. We find that such local dynamics can serve as an efficien t, robust, and reliable prototypical activation protocol in sensor networks in responding to various alarm scenarios. We also consider the same dynamics on a modified network by adding a few long-range communication links, resulting in a small-world network. We find that such construction can further enhance and optimize the speed… CONTINUE READING
