Node deployment is the key problem of wireless sensor network technology in application.
The existing study on deployment of deterministic perceived nodes is simplified to the randomly
deployment. In this paper, we take the effective coverage , connectivity and probability threshold as the
evaluation indices to analyze the different deployment models. Experimental results demonstrate that
the effective coverage area of the triangle deployment is the largest when using the same number of
nodes; and if the probability is less than limits, tile deployment does not need to increase the node to
ensure coverage. The research results of this paper provide an important reference for the deployment
of the directional sensor networks with the given parameters.
