Finding Perimeter of Query Regions in Heterogenous Wireless Sensor Networks
Keywords:Boundary estimation, distributed algorithm, heterogenous sensing radius, wireless sensor systems
AbstractSome applications in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) only need to record the information of a target entering or leaving some specific regions of WSNs perimeter. One important issue in this context is to detect the perimeter of the deployed network to ensure that the sensor nodes cover the target area. In this paper we propose two distributed algorithms to elect the perimeter nodes of query regions in a WSN. We consider the most general case, where every sensor has a different sensing radius. We provide performance metrics to analyze the performance of our approach and show by simulation that the proposed algorithms give good performance.
