In our previous studies, the immunity-based diagnostic model has been used by stationary agents in linked networks or by mobile agents on wired computer networks. We have not yet analyzed the performance of the diagnosis in wireless network where agents can move freely. In this paper, the diagnosis is applied to static and mobile sensor nodes in a 2-dimensional lattice space for wireless sensor network. Some simulation results show the strategy of going straight in the different direction can have the best detection rate. In addition, when the fraction of mobile nodes is changed, the transitions of the detection rate for the migration strategies are different.
