Randomness Assists in Wireless Connectivity

EasyChair Preprint no. 956

4 pagesDate: May 3, 2019


In a larger area with less number of deployed nodes, to localize the event such as the location of the fire in a forest, the transmission range (TR) of different nodes plays a crucial role. Here, this study demonstrates a method to increase the transmission range (TR) using the benefits of randomness. With the mathematical expression, we have shown how randomness can benefit us. The increment in σ causes an average increase in the transmission range. This increment in transmission range causes a high probability of connection C(r) between two remote nodes. According to the event, some of the nodes can be placed in an area for the detection of the exact location of the fire. It can be possible that either some of the nodes positioned at the precise location or can be some meters away. We are assuming the case of nodes placed at a distance from the location of the fire. The reflected signal which will be received by the transmitting node from the destination will of lower strength and hence it won’t be possible for us to detect the exact location. For increasing the exactness of the location, we can introduce disturbance between the two distinct nodes which in turn creates more randomness due to the multiple reflections.
