Radioactive Pollution Monitoring Using Triangular Deployment in Wireless Sensor Network

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 243)


The deployment mechanism in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) affects the coverage, connectivity, and lifetime of network. Depending upon the application, the sensor nodes can be deployed in a random or deterministic fashion. In this paper, we have proposed a comprehensive framework for radioactive pollution detection and monitoring using WSNs. In the proposed framework, nodes are deployed in a triangular grid form to cover whole region with minimum number of nodes. This framework includes proposals for the WSNs architecture and communication protocols to detect the radioactive radiation threats quickly. This paper also presents a new deterministically deployed cluster head selection algorithm (D2CH) for choosing cluster head; therefore, it enhances the lifetime of the network. Analysis and simulation results demonstrate the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed work.
