Title: Power-Aware Sensor Coverage: An Optimal Control Approach
Author: Martin, Patrick ; Galvan-Guerra, Rosalba ; Egerstedt, Magnus B. ; Azhmyakov, Vadim
Abstract: Sensor networks primarily have two competing objectives: they must sense as much as possible, yet last as long as possible when deployed. In this paper, we approach this problem using optimal control. We describe a model that relates each sensor’s “footprint” to their power consumption and use this model to derive optimal control laws that maintain the area coverage for a specified operational lifetime. This optimal control approach is then deployed onto different sensor networks and evaluated for its ability to maintain coverage during their desired lifetime.
