A Pursuer-Evader Game for Sensor Networks

- Evader is omniscient;Strategy of evader is unknown
- Pursuer can only see state of nearest node;Pursuer moves faster than evader ( ratio = f )
- Required is to design a program for nodes and pursuer so that pursuer can catch evader (despite the occurrence of faults)

- Connected graph of sensor nodes
- Transient faults; connectivity still maintained
- Maximal parallelism in node actions

- Evader-centric program
- move is costly, find is for free
- sensor nodes communicate periodically with neighbors
- stabilizes and tracks faster

- Pursuer-centric program
- find is costly, move is for free
- sensor nodes communicate with neighbors only upon request
- minimizes number of messages and energy efficient

- Hybrid program
- find & move are both tunable

- Evader-centric program
- Pursuer-centric program
- Hybrid program
- Extensions

- Nodes collectively maintain a tracking tree
- ts.j : latest timestamp that j knows about detection of evader
- p.j: parent of j in tree
- d.j : distance of j from evader
- root is the node where the evader resides
{Evader resides at j} ---> p.j := j; ts.j :=clock.j; d.j :=0

- every node sets its parent to be the nbr with maximum ts
ts.k > ts.j ---> p.j :=k ; ts.j := ts.(p.j); d.j:= d.(p.j)+1

- Find is for free: pursuer follows the tracking tree to its root

- Tracking tree is dynamically rooted at the evader
- Parent of a node is closer to the evader

- Tracking tree is dynamically rooted at the evader
- Parent of a node is closer to the evader

- Tracking tree is dynamically rooted at the evader
- Parent of a node is closer to the evader

- Tracking tree is rooted at the evader within D steps
- soft-state stabilization

- The distance between pursuer and evader does not increase once the constructed tree includes the pursuer
- Starting from an arbitrary state pursuer catches evader in at most D+ 2D * f/(1-f) steps

- Move is for free: ts.j is maintained locally
{evader detected at j} ---> ts.j := clock.j

- Nodes communicate with nbrs only at the request of pursuer; pursuer is directed to nbring node with highest recorded time
{pursuer detected at j} ---> next.j :in {k | ts.k= max ts.nbr.j };

ts.j :=0

- Pursuer action is to move to next.j
- pursuer does a random walk until it reaches a node that evader has visited

- If the pursuer reaches a node j with ts.j>0, pursuer catches evader within N*f/(1-f) steps

- Since ts.j is reset to 0 when pursuer visits j, bad values disappear
- From random walk result, pursuer reaches a node j, ts.j >0 , within O( N2 * log N ) steps
- Then, pursuer catches evader within N*f/(1-f) steps

Tracking tree is bounded to a depth R

Pursuer-centric program is executed at nodes outside tracking tree

- Since tracking tree is bounded to a depth R, soft-state stabilization is not available for nodes outside tree
- Cycles are detected and removed by counting to R

- Starting from an arbitrary state pursuer finds the tracking tree in at most O( (N-n)2 * log (N-n) ) steps
- n : number of nodes in tracking tree

- Then, pursuer catches evader within R*f/(1-f) steps
- Hybrid program is tunable by assigning R appropriately

- Evader-centric program
- Pursuer-centric program
- Hybrid program
- Extensions

- Asynchronous model :
Readily available

- Faster convergence :
Extended hybrid program

- Better scalability :
Hierarchical tracking program

- Evader-centric program
- instead of ts.j maintain val.j
- val.j denotes the number of detections of the evader that j is aware of
- when j detects evader it increments val.j
- tracking tree is rooted at evader in 2D steps
- we have implemented the asynchronous version for June 2002 DARPA/NEST demo

- Pursuer-centric program
- readily available

- Pursuer-centric program can be modified query a radius Rp(instead of 1) s.t. R+ Rp = D

Self-Stabilizing Hierarchical Tracking Service for Sensor Networks

- Maintain tracking structure
- over fewer number of nodes
- with accuracy inversely proportional to the distance from evader
- communication cost of msgj,k= distance(j,k), delay= δ*distance(j,k)
- nearby nodes (cheap to update) have recent & accurate info
- distant nodes (expensive to update) have stale & rough info

- Local operations :
- Cost of move proportional to the distance the evader moves
- Cost of find proportional to the distance from the evader
- Cost of healing proportional to the size of the initial perturbation

- To this end we employ a hierarchical partitioning of the network

Hierarchical tracking path

evader

evader

evader

- Grow action for building a tracking path
- Shrink action for cleaning unrooted paths

- Searching phase:
- A find operation at j queries j’s neighbors & j’s clusterhead at increasingly higher levels to find the tracking path

- Tracing phase:
- Once path is found, operation follows the path to its root

Examples of find

A find for an evader d away incurs O(d) work/time cost

- guaranteed to hit the tracking path at level logRd of hierarchy

evader dithering between cluster boundaries may lead to nonlocal updates

evader

- Laterallinks to avoid nonlocal updates
- When evader moves to new location j:
- a new path is started from j
- the new path checks neighbors at each level to see whether insertion of a lateral link is possible

- Restricts lateral links to 1 per level in order not to deteriorate the tracking path
- otherwise find would not be local since it could not hit the path at level logRd for an evader d away

Examples of move

A move to distance d away incurs O(d*logRd) work/time cost

- a level L pointer is updated at every iL-1Ridistance; level L is updated d/iL-1Ritimes
- update at L incurs O(RL) cost

Local healing means work/time for recovery proportional to perturbation size & not the network size

In the presence of faults

a grow can be mistakenly initiated; shrink should contain grow

a shrink can be mistakenly initiated; grow should contain shrink

- Give more priority to the action that has more recent info regarding the validity of the path
- A shrink or grow action is delayed for longer periods as the level of the node executing the action gets higher
- j.grow-timer = g * R lvl(j)
- j.shrink-timer = s * R lvl(j)

- For g=5δ, s=11δ, b=11δR
- grow catches shrink in 2 levels:
logR ((bR–b+sR2–gR-δR)/(sR-gR-3δ))

- shrink catches grow in 4 levels:
logR ((bR–b+sR+gR-2s+3δR)/(gR-s-δ))

- grow catches shrink in 2 levels:

- Fault-containment does not affect responsiveness
- Total delaying up to l is a constant factor of communication delay up to l, δR l

- Concurrent move operations
- move occurs before tracking path is updated
- a complete path is no longer possible; discontinuity in the path
- give a bound on evader speed to maintain a reachable path

- Concurrent find operations
- when find reaches a dead-end, search phase is re-executed
- reachability condition guarantees that new path is nearby

- Cost of find & move unaffected
