In this paper, we address the issue of handling uncertainty and information fusion for an efficient WSN deployment. We present a flexible framework for collaborative target detection within the transferable belief model. Using the developed framework, we propose an uncertainty-aware deployment algorithm that is able to determine the minimum number of sensors and their locations such that full area coverage is achieved. The issues of connectivity, obstacles, preferential coverage, challenging environments and sensor reliability are also discussed. Experimental results are provided to demonstrate the ability of our approach to achieve an efficient sensor deployment by exploiting a collaborative target detection scheme.
