This paper deals with a self-deployment of the mobile sensor network in an unknown environment. A mobile sensor network is composed of distributed collection of nodes, each of which has sensing, computation, communication and locomotion capabilities. Such a network is capable of self-reconfiguration of the network topology in order to gather distributed information on the dynamic environment. We propose the self-deployment algorithm for mobile sensor network which is adapted for an environmental change, only using local information in restrictions, such as breakdown of nodes an electric wave obstacle, and electric power consumption. The validity of the self-deployment algorithm was shown from the simulation result.
