    Minimize a function

    I would appreciate assistance with a problem involving minimizing a function:

    For a vineyard 10-by-5 kms, what is the minumim number of wireless sensors that may be deployed in order to cover the entire land given that the range of each sensor is 100 meters radius.

    Would greatly appreciate pointers to an approach that may be adopted to address the above.

    Look forward to a prompt response.

    Best regards,

    I'm not sure if you are looking for this: Tessellation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I would use regular hexagons arranged like honeycombs.
