Abstract

Sensor deployment is an important problem in mobile wireless sensor networks. This paper presents a distributed self deployment algorithm for mobile sensors. Performance metrics to evaluate algorithm performance are coverage, uniformity, time and distance traveled till the algorithm converges. Our algorithm is compared with a simulated annealing based algorithm for deployment and is shown to exhibit excellent performance.
