Abstract
The wireless sensor networks (WSNs) became a very essential tool in the field of borders and military zones surveillance for that a specific applications have been developed. To accomplish this spot, usually the deployment of nodes is a random, which provides heterogeneous topologies. In contrast, the process used for the identification of all nodes located on the network’s outer edge is very long and consumes considerable energy. Before any other activities on such sensitive networks, we have to identify the border nodes by means of specific algorithms. In this paper a solution to solve this problem has been proposed for detecting border nodes with the selection of nodes used just for monitoring; this mechanism is designed with several starter nodes in order to reduce the time, the number of exchanged packets and the consumed energy. This method is decomposed in three phases: the first one is to detect triggers which have to start the mechanism of boundary nodes (BNs) detection, the second to detect the whole border, and the third, to exclude each BN from the routing tables of all its neighbors so it cannot be used for the routing job
