Title: Algorithms for Barrier Coverage with Wireless Sensors
Speaker: Dr. Xiao Zhang, City University of Hong-Kong
Abstract: Barrier coverage is a critical problem in wireless sensor networks. In the area, we study the barrier coverage problem from two perspectives, i.e., static sensors with adjustable sensing ranges and mobile sensors with fixed sensing ranges. Specifically, in the first topic, we consider the barrier coverage problem for a line interval, in which we are given a set of sensors and the goal is to determine a range assignment with the lowest possible cost. In the second topic, we consider the problem of covering a line interval by mobile sensors such that the maximum of moving cost is minimized.
