Supplementary Material

There are two files in the enclosed supplementary files, 2d-multi-sensors 4.avi and 3d-multi-sensors 20.avi, respectively.

In Supplementary Video 1 (2d-multi-sensors 4.avi): a simulation result to indentify the evolution trajectory of a MASNs with 4 mobile sensors are unfolded, the simulation suggests the efficiency of the DLRA and combined control strategy, where the re-configuration of mobile sensor networks is completed with a matter of seconds for small scale networks.

In Supplementary Video 2 (3d-multi-sensors 20.avi): a simulation result to indentify the evolution trajectory of a MASNs with 20 mobile sensors in space dispersion are unfolded, the simulation suggests that: in 3 dimensional mobile sensor network application, e.g., UAVs and UWVs, the efficiency of the DLRA and combined control strategy can still be preserved. The re-configuration of mobile sensor networks is completed with a slightly longer time, however, no disconnection and collision avoidance whatsoever can occurred with our strategy, and the redundant communication links can be reduced dramatically to enhance the coverage of MASNs.
