Sandeep Singh Syan , Amandeep Kaur Virk. "Node Placement for Efficient Coverage in Homogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(7):2991-2993 Jul 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group.


Coverage problems are caused due to the limited communication and sensing range between sensor nodes. The coverage problem casts a result of, how well an area is monitored or tracked by sensors. A good sensor deployment algorithm gives us minimum intersecti on of sensor’s range and maximizes the total area covered by sensors. In the proposed algorithm, we found a fact that homogeneous sensors are deployed which are used for removing the intersection between the sensors, so that, maximum area got covered using the sensor nodes.
