problems can be classified in three types I Area coverage the main objective is to cover an area I Point coverage the objective is to cover a set of targets I Detectability an objective to determine the maximal supportbreach paths that traverse a sensor field 39 139 Area coverage includes three viewpoints I Statistical coverage of largescale sensor networks I Deterministic coverage of static sensor networks I Dynamic coverage of mobile sensor networks an Structure of my lecture presentation 1 Statistical coverage of largescale sensor networks I Character the followings by studying the

deterministic coverage of static sensor networks I aims at energy conversation switch some redundant sensors to sleeping state I how to efficiently select the active node that must maintain both sensing coverage and network connectivity Coverage degree and connectivity degree of a graph or region I Definition of coverage degree a convex region A has a coverage degree of K if every location inside A is covered by at least K nodes l Definition of connectivity degree if a graph is K connected then for any possible k 1 active nodes which fail the sensor network will remain connected Goals in static sensor network I Given a coverage region A and a node coverage degree K the goal of an integrated coverage and connectivity configuration is to maximize the number of nodes that are scheduled to sleep under the constrains that the remaining nodes must guarantee 1 A is at least K covered 2 All active nodes are connected Relationship between degree of coverage and connectivity I

Algorithm Given a requested coverage degree K a node is ineligible if every location within its coverage range is already K covered by other active nodes in its neighborhood 39 1 Coverage configuration protocol CCPxwo5 Each node determines its eligibility using the K coverage eligibility algorithm based on the information about its sensing neighbors and may switch state dynamically when its eligibility changes Key benefits of GOP 1 GOP can configure a network to the specific coverage degree requested by the application 2 It is a decentralized protocol that only depends on local states of sensing neighbors Shortcoming of GOP It does not guarantee the scheduling of sensors is optimal and also does not give the comparison and analysis of the gap between GOP and optimal solution

probability for grid point g is evaluated by 19Si 1 H 1 19 Sk ES goal I Only nodes in the subset need to be actively performing the sensing task and all grid points are still covered with detection probability no lower than pm I The optimization of this problem is to find such a subset with minimum size ie the minimum number of nodes quot139 Coveragecentric active nodes selection CCANS

Structure of my lecture presentation Detectability problem I A sensor network may need to detect intruders An intruder may start at a point 8 follow an arbitrary trajectory path and stop at some other point T I How to evaluate the vulnerability and efficiency of a sensor network Maximum breach path and maximum support path I Given two points 8 and T two relevant types of trajectories on the plane 1 the maximum breach path measures the vulnerability of sensor network It is trajectory between the start point 8 and the stop point Tthat stays as far away from the sensors as possible 2 The maximum support path measures the efficiency of the network coverage It is trajectory between the start point 8 and the stop point Tthat stays as close to the sensors as possible Formal definition I A maximum breach path from S to Tis a path such that the minimum distance from a point P in the path to the sensor network is maximized And this distance is called the worstcase coverage distance of the network I A maximum support path from S to Tis a path such that the maximum distance of a point P in the path to the sensor network is minimized And the distance is called the bestcase coverage distance of
