Wireless sensor networks assist monitoring and scheming of physical environments from isolated places with enhanced precision. Environmental monitoring, military purposes are some of the applications of it. Sensor nodes comprise a variety of energy and computational constraints since they are inexpensive. For abundant applications of sensor network, it is indispensable to offer absolute sensing coverage to a defense-perceptive vicinity. To dynamically observe the range of object the division of sensors are redundantly utilized. The function of the scheme is to offer meticulous and precise data to remote observer, by considerately sensing, linking, and analyzing the apparent object data in monitoring vicinity. To accomplish associated assignment and comprehend its significance, at the outset, wireless sensor network should cover up monitoring vicinity well. The coverage of the network is an essential measure to evaluate wireless sensor network performance and quality of service. Utilization of increased amount of sensor nodes in target vicinity leads to the presence of redundant nodes which in turn reduces the quality of service of the network. This paper aims to re-establish the field coverage area in an energy efficient approach by occasionally refreshing and switching the cover to deal with unforeseen collapse and also flexibly sustain additional sensors at a time with dissimilar degrees in scattered way that once in a while chooses the coverage area and toggle among them to expand coverage interval and withstand unanticipated breakdown during the runtime.
