Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of NAUN Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Title of the Paper: Mathematical Modeling of Optimal Node Deployment for Indoor Wireless Sensor Networks


Authors: Lial Raja Missif, Mohammad M. Kadhum

Pages: 1-6

Abstract: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has been utilized in environmental monitoring where large number of connected sensor nodes collaboratively sense and report conditions of the monitoring area. Indoor event sensing and tracking is one of WSN applications that has a significant effect on saving cost economically and humanitarianly. Efficient sensor node deployment can ensure coverage, connectivity, and stability of the network. This paper presents the mathematical modeling of a node deployment for indoor wireless sensor networks where the optimal number of nodes required to satisfy the coverage of the indoor area and network connectivity requirements is determined. The proposed solution contributes to the reduction in the cost and maintenance of the network as less number of sensors is needed, compared to the traditional grid node deployment.
