Because of this nodes are normally battery powered. This limits the lifetime of the network. In this paper, we propose a novel method of scheduling nodes based on a user’s sensing coverage requirement. Through the use of our proposed scheduling algorithm (Ncut-GA), it is shown that the duration for which the user’s coverage requirement is met can be extended. When compared with a previously published algorithm (Greedy-MSC), the proposed algorithm is able to increase coverage duration by up to 80%. Furthermore it is also shown that the time until the first node dies can be improved by up to 200% through the use of Ncut-GA.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Journal:||Telecommunication Systems||Volume:||52||Issue:||4||Start page:||2667||End page:||2675||Copyright (published version):||2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC||Keywords:||Sensing coverage; Scheduling; Genetic algorithm||DOI:||10.1007/s11235-011-9595-0||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
