Abstract

Modeling the coverage of a sensor network is an important step in a number of design and optimization techniques. The nature of vision sensors presents unique challenges in deriving such models for camera networks. A comprehensive survey of geometric and topological coverage models for camera networks from the literature is presented. The models are analyzed and compared in the context of their intended applications, and from this treatment the properties of a hypothetical inclusively general model of each type are derived.
