Abstract:In order to efficiently deal with subscriptions or other location dependent information, it is key that the wireless sensor network informs the gateways what geographical area is serviced by which gateway. The gateways are then able to e.g. efficiently route subscriptions which are only valid in particular regions of the deployment.

In our distributed approach of establishing a description of WSN coverage area per gateway, we let nodes keep track of the convex hull of the coverage area. In this way, gateways are efficiently informed of the service areas, while we limit the amount of information each node needs to store, transmit and receive.
