Implementation of coverage problem in wireless sensor network based on unit Disk model

Tirkey, Pretty Sapna (2014) Implementation of coverage problem in wireless sensor network based on unit Disk model. BTech thesis.



Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have a wide range of applicability in many industrial and civilian applications such as industrial process monitoring and control, environment and habitat monitoring, machine health monitoring, home automation, health care applications, nuclear reactor control, fire detection, object tracking and traffic control. A WSN consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors those cooperatively monitor the physical or environmental conditions including temperature, sound, vibration, motion, pressure or pollutants. In sensor networks where the environment is needed to be remotely monitored, the data from the individual sensor nodes is sent to a central base station (often located far from the network), through which the end-user can access data. The number of sensor nodes in a Wireless Sensor Network can vary in the range of hundreds to thousands. Such a network may have many challenges like low energy consumption, functional independence, efficient distributed algorithms, transmission routes, coverage, synchronization, topology control, robustness and fault tolerance, cost of maintaining the sensors and lifetime of the network.
