Optimal Coverage Model in Clifford 3-Connected Wireless Sensor Networks
While moderate loss of coverage can be tolerated by WSN applications, loss of connectivity can be fatal. Moreover, since sensors are subject to unanticipated failures after deployment, it is not sufficient for a wireless sensor network to just be connected, it should be Clifford 3-connected . In this dissertation, we propose optimal deployment patterns to achieve both full coverage and Cliford 3-connectivity, and analyses their optimality for all values of , where is the communication radius and is the sensing radius.
