Abstract—Network coverage is important in wireless sensor network. It depends on node deployment strategy. Boundary effect in node deployment plays an important role in network coverage. In this paper, we present the impact of boundary effect on node coverage success probability and coverage fraction. This result will be useful in studying information generation, collection and forwarding in a wireless sensor network. It has been found the boundary effect can be ignored when node sensing area of a node is much smaller than the area of interest.
Index Terms—Boundary effect, coverage fraction, information generation, wireless sensor network.
