Wireless sensor networks are a relatively new area where technology is developing fast and are used to solve a great diversity of problems that range from museums’ security to wildlife protection. The geometric optimisation problem solved in this paper is aimed at minimising the sensors’ range so that every point on a polygonal region R is within the range of at least two sensors. Moreover, it is also shown how to minimise the sensors’ range to assure the existence of a path within R that stays as close to two sensors as possible. View Full-Text
