A location independent coverage control algorithm LICA is proposed in this paper. LICA adopts the hierarchical clustering idea. The neighboring nodes exchange the information and find out redundancy node in order to turn off their communications equipment. The simulation and analysis study demonstrate that the LICA not only provides the high quality of area coverage and good scalability, but also provides better performance in the energy efficiency. It is particularly suitable for the low-cost wireless sensor networks, especially when it is used in adverse circumstances lacking in resources.
