Voronoi coverage control is the problem of locating vehicles at the centroid of their Voronoi cell. This problem is often used to model the task of deploying sensors to cover a planar area. Until recently, extensions to cover non-convex regions assumed visibility was never blocked. Nevertheless, visibility is an important consideration when deploying some types of sensors. This paper focuses on the problem of covering a region when non-convexities or holes in the region block visibility. A… CONTINUE READING
