When wireless sensors are used to keep an area under surveillance, a critical issue is the quality of the deployment from the sensing coverage viewpoint. In this paper, we propose several quality measures, which indicate if the deployment provides sufficient coverage, or whether redeployment is required or not. The terrain is modeled as a grid and the placement of the sensors is uniformly distributed. Neyman–Pearson detection is utilized to determine the effects of false-alarm and signal characteristics on the measures.

Path planning for mobile-anchor based wireless sensor network localization: Static and dynamic schemes
Erdemir, Ecenaz; Tuncer, Temel Engin (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-01)
In wireless sensor networks, node locations are required for many applications. Usually, anchors with known positions are employed for localization. Sensor positions can be estimated more efficiently by using mobile anchors (MAs). Finding the best MA trajectory is an important problem in this context. Various path planning algorithms are proposed to localize as many sensors as possible by following the shortest path with minimum number of anchors. In this paper, path planning algorithms for MA assisted loca...

Wireless Passive Sensor Networks
Akan, Ozgur B.; Isik, M. Talha; Baykal, Buyurman (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-08-01)
The primary challenge in wireless sensor network deployment is the limited network lifetime due to finite-capacity batteries. Hence, the vast majority of research efforts thus far have focused on the development of energy-efficient communication and computing mechanisms for WSNs. In this article a fundamentally different approach and hence completely new WSN paradigm, the wireless passive sensor network, is introduced. The objective of the WPSN is to eliminate the limitation on system lifetime of the WSN. I...
Lifetime extension for surveillance wireless sensor networks with intelligent redeployment
Kosar, Rabun; Bojaxhiu, Ilir; Onur, Ertan; Ersoy, Cem (Elsevier BV, 2011-11-01)
For wireless sensor networks (WSNs), uneven energy consumption is a major problem. A direct consequence of this is the energy hole problem, formation of sensing voids within the network field due to battery depleted sensors in the corresponding region. Hole formations are inherent in the network topology, yet it is possible to develop strategies to delay the hole formations to later stages of the network operation and essentially extend the network lifetime without sensing quality loss. In this work, we ini...
Efficient active rule processing in wireless multimedia sensor networks

Due to limited energy resources in wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs), there is a need to perform data reduction and elimination over raw video data at the camera sensors before transmission. Nonetheless, this data reduction and elimination may create imprecision and uncertainty in the data, reducing the quality of decision making. In this paper, we propose a reactive mechanism for not only fusing uncertain data at the sink but also for automated processing of data using active rules, extending the...
