Scenarios of Lifetime Extension Algorithms for Wireless Ad Hoc Networks


Amir J. Majid, Ajman University, UAE


An Algorithm to extend sensor lifetime and energy is implemented for different scenarios of ad hoc and wireless sensor networks. The goal is to prolong the lifetimes of sensors, covering a number of targeted zones by creating subsets of sensors, in which each subset covers entirely the targeted zones. Probabilistic analysis is assumed in which each sensor covers one or more targets, according to their coverage failure probabilities. Case studies of different sensor subsets arrangements are considered such as load switching, variable target load demands as well as a perturbation in sensor planner locations.
