© 2001-2012 IEEE. Sensing coverage is a fundamental design problem in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). This is because there is always a possibility that the sensor nodes may function incorrectly due to a number of reasons, such as failure, power, or noise instability, which negatively influences the coverage of the WSNs. In order to address this problem, we propose a fuzzy-based self-healing coverage scheme for randomly deployed mobile sensor nodes. The proposed scheme determines the uncovered sensing areas and then select the best mobile nodes to be moved to minimize the coverage hole. In addition, it distributes the sensor nodes uniformly considering Euclidean distance and coverage redundancy among the mobile nodes. We have performed an extensive performance analysis of the proposed scheme. The results of the experiment show that the proposed scheme outperforms the existing approaches.
