Comparison of MANET self-organization methods for boundary detection/tracking of heavy gas cloud
AbstractMobile wireless ad hoc network (MANET) becomes increasingly popular in responding to emergency situation. In this paper a possibility to support rescue team in monitoring heavy gas cloud with MANET comprised of mobile sensing devices is investigated. In the view of the current state of research, two methods for controlling mobile sensing devices during MANET self-organization are presented. The first one is based on a greedy approach whereas the second on a repulsion from the estimated centroid of a cloud and other nodes. Various variants of both methods are considered and their efficiency in terms of detection quality and energy saving is evaluated with MobASim simulation software. The results are discussed and one variant is chosen as the basis for the future research.
