3D Sensor Placement Optimization: A Mathematical Programming Approach

Giorgio Fasano (giorgio.fasano***at***thalesaleniaspace.com)

Abstract: This work considers the issue of placing a limited number of sensor cameras within a given convex volume, in order to maximize the coverage of a convex three-dimensional domain. The non-identical sensing regions associated with the cameras are convex as well. We introduce a global optimization model of this problem. We formulate a mixed-integer linear programming and a mixed-integer nonlinear programming model version. We also discuss related application aspects.

Keywords: Sensor camera network/arrays, three-dimensional continuous set covering problems, global optimization, mixed integer linear and non-linear programming model forms, solution methods.
