Sensor networks have recently emerged as a premier research topic. Sensor networks pose a number of new conceptual and optimization problems. Some, such as location, deployment, and tracking, are fundamental issues, in that many applications rely on them for needed information. While designing the sensor networks according to performed computation, the limited number of sensors to cover an area will be considered, so the proper placing of this limited number of sensors will cause costs to reduce regarding to coverage and development of the network in the next stage. In this paper we will present a genetic algorithm to solve the designing issue of the sensor network. The most important property of the presented algorithm is to find the sensors location and to discover the number of these sensors for the proper coverage and also to minimize the costs. This algorithm includes the ability to find the number of essential sensor for each real map.
