Finite Energy Coverage Control with Limited Range Anisotropic Sensor for Mobile Sensor Networks (extended)
Following up the previous post of the preliminary study, here I try to post the complete paper titled Finite Energy Coverage Control with Limited Range Anisotropic Sensor for Mobile Sensor Networks.
In the middle of August 2010, I flight back to Indonesia and continue my study in electrical engineering department, Bandung Institute of Technology. Around 2 weeks after the arrival date, I met Prof. Bambang R. Trilaksono that later become one of my thesis advisor/supervisor (The other one is Dr. Kusprasapta M.).
Even I only presented the preliminary study in Tokyo (which is only related to energy consideration), in fact, I’ve expanded my research to communication cost optimization. The expanded research has been written in a paper that published in International Conference on Intelligent and Unmanned System (ICIUS) 2010 sponsored by IEEE. This conference was conducted in Bali around October 2010. I was there to present the paper.
More/less the abstract of the paper is not much different than its preliminary study.
This paper presents the coverage control with mobile anisotropic sensor networks. Energy and communication cost of each mobile sensor are considered. Moreover, it is assumed that each agent is equipped with omni-directional communication capability. A distributed control algorithm based on gradient descent is also proposed to bring robots to the region of interest. Simulations illustrate the result.
