Paper Abstract

The ability of a sensor device is affected significantly by the surroundings and environment in which it is placed. In almost all sensor modalities, some directions are better observed by a sensor than others. Furthermore, the exact impact on the sensing ability of the device is dependent on the position assigned to the sensor. While the problem of determining good coverage schemes for sensors of a field have many good solutions, not many approaches are known to address the challenges arising due to location specific distortion. In this paper, we look at the problem of incorporating terrain specific challenges in sensor coverage, and propose a geometric solution to address them.
