A Deployment Method for Air-dropping Sensor Nodes by Switching Their Falling Behaviors
Tomoya Kitani (Shizuoka Univ.), Yoshiaki Taniguchi (Osaka Univ.) NS2008-232
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In wireless sensor networks, coverage, conectivity, lifetime, and robustness are affected by initial physical location of sensor nodes.
In this paper we propose a novel node deployment method when tons of sensor nodes are distributed from the air.
In our deployment method, a sensor node has a parchute and a device to switch its two falling behaviors (gliding and falling) in the air.
After dropped down from midair, sensor nodes change their falling behavior at scheduled time in order to distribute them uniformly.
Moreover, each sensor node exchanges messages with vicinal nodes in the air, and then the node can change its falling behavior again according to the number of the vicinal nodes in order to reduce non-uniformly distribution areas.
Through simulation experiments, it is shown that our deployment method can achieve nearly uniform distribution.
