Abstract

In this paper, we study the impacts of sensor node distributions on network coverage. We first show the impacts on network coverage by adopting different sensor node distributions through both analytical and simulation studies. Then, we adopt a distribution-free approach to study network coverage, in which no assumption of probability distribution of sensor node locations is needed. The proposed approach has yielded good estimations of network coverage.
