In this work point coverage, sink location and data routing problems are considered in an integrated way and two new mixed integer programming formulations are proposed. Since these models are computationally difficult to solve, a hierarchical solution procedure is proposed. In the top level, best sensor locations are sought by variable neighbourhood search. Given the sensor locations, a simpler formulation can be obtained and a Lagrangean heuristic is used to solve the sink location and data routing model efficiently. Experimental results indicate that the performance of hierarchical solution approach is very good.
