Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) use static nodes to relay proximal information for analysis. These static nodes have a sensing radius, which may not cover the entire network space. To maximize the area of network coverage, we propose an Integer Linear Programming (ILP) formulation, utilizing both static and mobile nodes. The mobile nodes are capable of travelling across the area of interest, to cover empty ‘holes’ (i.e. regions not covered by any of the static nodes) in a WSN. The goal is to find successive positions of the mobile node through the network, in order to maximize the network area coverage, or achieve a specified level of coverage while minimizing the number of iterations used to do so. Simulations of the formulation on small WSNs show promising results in terms of both objectives.
