9
Design Goals for Deployment We are given a 2-dimensional square region with total area A Minimize the maximum distance between any point in A and the nearest sensor Minimize the maximum distance between any point in A and the nearest sensor Keep the distance between adjacent sensors less than r Keep the distance between adjacent sensors less than r Measure point values, compute gradients and significant thresholds Measure point values, compute gradients and significant thresholds

10
Design Considerations Financial and other constraints often limit the total number of nodes, N Financial and other constraints often limit the total number of nodes, N Failure of individual nodes should not disable the entire network Failure of individual nodes should not disable the entire network Reducing the transmission range improves the energy efficiency Reducing the transmission range improves the energy efficiency

11
Regular Deployments Square, triangular, or hexagonal tiles Square, triangular, or hexagonal tiles Nodes must be within range r of their neighbors Nodes must be within range r of their neighbors Sampling distance δ Sampling distance δ Degree 4, 6, or 3 provides redundancy Degree 4, 6, or 3 provides redundancy Which is best? Which is best? a (a) Square tiles (b) Triangle tile (c) Hexagon tile

12
Computing with N, r, δ Standard formulas for tile area (α) and for distance to the center of the tile Standard formulas for tile area (α) and for distance to the center of the tile Distance to center < δ Distance to center < δ Distance between nodes < r Distance between nodes < r Each node is part of c = (6, 4, or 3) tiles Each node is part of c = (6, 4, or 3) tiles N = (A/α)/c, where A/α is the number of tiles N = (A/α)/c, where A/α is the number of tiles

13
Main Results for Regular Grids N is proportional to the surface area of A N is proportional to the surface area of A if r < δ, hexagonal deployment minimizes N, and N is inversely proportional to r 2 if r < δ, hexagonal deployment minimizes N, and N is inversely proportional to r 2 If δ < r, triangular deployment minimizes N, and N is inversely proportional to δ 2 If δ < r, triangular deployment minimizes N, and N is inversely proportional to δ 2 Triangular, square, or hexagonal are within a factor of two of each other Triangular, square, or hexagonal are within a factor of two of each other

14
Sparse Grids If r < δ, we can reduce the number of nodes by going to sparse grids (sparse meshes) If r < δ, we can reduce the number of nodes by going to sparse grids (sparse meshes) Communication distance remains small Communication distance remains small the number of nodes may drop substantially the number of nodes may drop substantially 3 nodes per side, s=3 3 nodes per side, s=3 S=3

15
Main Results for Sparse Grids Communication radius r, tile side a = r * s Communication radius r, tile side a = r * s N is inversely proportional to a and to r N is inversely proportional to a and to r The degree of most nodes is two, so reliability is reduced – the same as for linear deployments The degree of most nodes is two, so reliability is reduced – the same as for linear deployments

16
1-Dimensional Deployment Many common applications: along streams, roads, ridges Many common applications: along streams, roads, ridges Requires relatively few nodes Requires relatively few nodes With the least number of nodes for a given r, network fails if a single node fails With the least number of nodes for a given r, network fails if a single node fails How well can we do if we double the number of nodes? How well can we do if we double the number of nodes?

Paired and Inline Performance For inline, two successive node failures disconnect the network For inline, two successive node failures disconnect the network For paired, failure of the two nodes of a pair disconnects the network For paired, failure of the two nodes of a pair disconnects the network The former is about twice as likely The former is about twice as likely

19
Sampling a Gradient If we know the gradient, a linear deployment is sufficient If we know the gradient, a linear deployment is sufficient A gradient can be computed from three samples in a triangle A gradient can be computed from three samples in a triangle Variable gradients need more and longer baselines, as do threshold determinations Variable gradients need more and longer baselines, as do threshold determinations Grids and sparse grids measure gradients well Grids and sparse grids measure gradients well

20
Quantifying a gradient The differences between pairs of samples help determine the gradient

21
Minimizing the number of nodes The ultimate sparse grid: a circle The ultimate sparse grid: a circle Tolerates single node failures Tolerates single node failures Even sampling in all directions Even sampling in all directions Lines outward from the center: a star Lines outward from the center: a star Center is well covered Center is well covered Star-3, Star-4, Star-5, Star-m Star-3, Star-4, Star-5, Star-m

22
Summary Many regular deployments Generally, N and r are given, sampling distance is allowed to vary Tradeoff between N and redundancy: sparse grids allow large sampling distance Lines, circles, stars are optimal when N is small, can provide information about gradients
