This study deals with maximising the sensing coverage in the wireless mobile sensor network. The authors present Distance Constrained Deployment (DCD) and Adaptive Distance Constrained Deployment (ADCD) algorithms to deploy sensors for the maximum coverage with the minimum average moving distance. The ADCD algorithm is applied for unplanned deployment of sensors in bounded areas with obstacles. The simulation results show that the ADCD algorithm achieves a smaller average moving distance compared to the existing algorithms and thus increases the sensor battery life.
