Coverage Density as a Dominant Property of Large-Scale Sensor Networks
Large-scale sensor networks are becoming more present in our life then ever. Such an environment could be a cellular network, an array of fire detection sensors, an array of solar receptors, and so on. As technology advances, opportunities arise to form large-scale cooperative systems in order to solve larger problems in an efficient way. As more large-scale systems are developed, there is a growing need to (i) measure the hardness of a given large-scale sensor network problem, (ii) compare a given system to other large-scale sensor networks in order to extract a suitable solution, (iii) predict the performance of the solution, and (iv) derive the value of each system property from the desired performance of the solution, the problem constraints, and the user's preferences. The following research proposes a novel system term, the coverage density, to define the hardness of a large-scale sensor network. This term can be used to compare two instances of large-scale sensor networks i...
