Coverage in Wireless Sensor Networks: A Survey

Raymond Mulligan, Habib M. Ammari

Abstract


Wireless sensor networks are a rapidly growing area for research and commercial development. Wireless sensor networks are used to monitor a given field of interest for changes in the environment. They are very useful for military, environmental, and scientific applications to name a few. One of the most active areas of research in wireless sensor networks is that of coverage. Coverage in wireless sensor networks is usually defined as a measure of how well and for how long the sensors are able to observe the physical space. In this paper, we take a representative survey of the current work that has been done in this area. We define several terms and concepts and then show how they are being utilized in various research works.
