Distributed, Reliable Restoration Techniques using Wireless Sensor Devices
Wireless sensor networks are small, inexpensive and flexible computational platforms, that have found popular applications in various areas including environmental monitoring, health care and disaster recovery. One fundamental question is how to place the nodes in the network so that complete coverage of the monitored area is achieved. In this paper, we use techniques from discrepancy theory that accurately represent the uncovered area using just a few discrete points, to make sure that every point in the network is covered by at least k sensors, where k is calculated based on user reliability requirements. Our technique is fully distributed, deploying a low number of sensors, and minimizes the communication costs. Our experiments demonstrate that our technique is highly effective in achieving a reliable restoration of a given sensor network area.
