This easy-to-read text focuses on challenges in coverage control in sensor networks, examines fundamental coverage problems, and presents the most recent advances and techniques in the field. Features: provides an introduction to sensors, sensor nodes, sensor networks, and sensor coverage models; supplies an informal definition and taxonomy for network-wide coverage control; explores the node placement optimization problem for coverage configuration before network deployment; investigates the coverage lifetime maximization problem by controlling coverage characteristics in a randomly deployed network; discusses the critical sensor-density problem for coverage configuration before network deployment; examines the sensor-activity scheduling problem of controlling network coverage characteristics in a randomly deployed network; introduces the node movement strategy problem for sensor networks containing mobile nodes; presents the challenges of building intrusion barriers and finding penetration paths.
