01 Coulomb’s Force Algorithm in Wireless Sensor Network
Shekhar Dwivedi

Wireless sensor network is an emerging and very hot technology these days. Due to recent advancement in semiconductors, networking and material science technologies,deployment of wireless sensor network has become cheaper and easier. Wireless sensor network can simply defined as a network formed by low power devices known as sensor node which monitors the environment or target field and communicate the gathered information to base station or sink node through wireless links using single hop or multi-hop relaying. Node deployment is basic issue of wireless sensor network asit can influence the performance metrics of WSNs connectivity, coverage and Energy consumption. Many deployment schemes have been proposed for wireless sensor networks.In this paper, we have proposed an algorithm to deploy sensor nodes uniformly in the target region. Our proposed algorithm CFA is based on coulomb’s law. We have also compared our proposed algorithm CFA with existing algorithm in terms of average moving distance and uniformity.
