deployment, clustering, sensor networks
Energy in a wireless sensor network(WSN) is a precious resource. Deployment of mobile sensors in a WSN is an energy consuming process and it should be carefully designed. In this paper, we propose an intelligent energy-efficient deployment algorithm for cluster-based WSN by a synergistic combination of cluster structuring and a peer-to-peer deployment scheme. Performance of our algorithm is evaluated in terms of coverage, uniformity, and time and distance traveled till the algorithm converges. Our algorithm is shown to exhibit excellent performance.
