Due to their applications, Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks (WSANs) have recently been getting significant attention from the research community. In these networks, maintaining inter-actor connectivity is of a paramount concern in order to plan an optimal coordinated response to a detected event. Failure of an actor may partition the inter-actor network into disjoint segments, and may thus hinder inter-actor coordination. This paper presents VCR, a novel distributed algorithm that opts to… CONTINUE READING
