Node-Replacement Policies to Maintain Threshold-Coverage in Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract— With the rapid deployment of wireless sensor networks, there are several new sensing applications with specific requirements. Specifically, target tracking applications are fundamentally concerned with the area of coverage across a sensing site in order to accurately track the target. We consider the problem of maintaining a minimum threshold-coverage in a wireless sensor network, while maximizing network lifetime and minimizing additional resources. We assume that the network has failed when the sensing coverage falls below the minimum threshold-coverage. We develop three node-replacement policies to maintain threshold-coverage in wireless sensor networks. These policies assess the candidature of each failed sensor node for replacement. Based on different performance criteria, every time a sensor node fails in the network, our replacement policies either replace with a new sensor or ignore the failure event. The node-replacement policies replace a failed node according t...
