Abstract

The article examines the distributed optimization problem in mobile heterogeneous sensor networks. Most coordination algorithms are designed based on geometric characteristics of the corresponding Voronoi cells of the nodes. However, these works consider networks where the sensing patterns of the nodes are identical. This article considers coordination of heterogeneous networks, where the sensing radii of the nodes differ, while the proposed deployment algorithm for area-coverage optimization is based on a modified Voronoi-like space partitioning scheme. The proposed control scheme is developed in a distributed manner, while the advantages of the proposed technique are validated via simulation studies.
