MURRAY, R. SPOT-A SENSOR PLACEMENT OPTIMIZATION TOOL FOR DRINKING WATER CONTAMINATION WARNING SYSTEM DESIGN. In Proceedings, ASCE/EWRI Conference , Tampa, FL, May 01 - 31, 2007. American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Reston, VA, 1-8, (2007).

Impact/Purpose:

This paper presents SPOT, a Sensor Placement Optimization Tool. SPOT provides a toolkit that facilitates research in sensor placement optimization and enables the practical application of sensor placement solvers to real-world CWS design applications. This paper provides an overview of SPOT’s key features, and then illustrates how this tool can be flexibly applied to solve a variety of different types of sensor placement problems.
