abstract

One of the main goals of sensor networks is to provide accurate information about a sensing field for an extended period of time. This requires collecting measurements from as many sensors as possible to have a better view of the sensor surroundings. However, due to energy limitations and to prolong the network lifetime, the number of active sensors should be kept to a minimum. To resolve this conflict of interest, sensor selection schemes are used. In this paper, we survey different schemes that are used to select sensors. Based on the purpose of selection, we classify the schemes into (1) coverage schemes, (2) target tracking and localization schemes, (3) single mission assignment schemes and (4) multiple missions assignment schemes. We also look at solutions to relevant problems from other areas and consider their applicability to sensor networks. Finally, we take a look at the open research problems in this field.
