Sensor relocation in mobile sensor networks
— Recently there has been a great deal of research on using mobility in sensor networks to assist in the initial deployment of nodes. Mobile sensors are useful in this environment because they can move to locations that meet sensing coverage requirements. This paper explores the motion capability to relocate sensors to deal with sensor failure or respond to new events. We define the problem of sensor relocation and propose a two-phase sensor relocation solution: redundant sensors are first identified and then relocated to the target location. We propose a Grid-Quorum solution to quickly locate the closest redundant sensor with low message complexity, and propose to use cascaded movement to relocate the redundant sensor in a timely, efficient and balanced way. Simulation results verify that the proposed solution outperforms others in terms of relocation time, total energy consumption, and minimum remaining energy.
