For an engineer, it is always a difficult task to deploy a distributed wireless sensor network for buildings, without initial planning of the infrastructure of the network. A robust network is one that provides entire connectivity without compromising the signal strength. Another important parameter to be considered is the cost of the network, which can be reduced by deploying the most optimized and resilient network. With this project, we have designed an interactive design tool using Matlab that can help an engineer to plan and place the router nodes before actual deployment. The reference methods are based on Dijkstra’s algorithm, line based algorithm and clustering algorithm for placing of routers. In this project, we have used best from all the algorithms to present a novel approach for the placement of routers. This algorithm provides improved results than the reference methods and thus further reduces the cost of the network.
