The effectiveness of a distributed self organizing Mobile Wireless sensor Network depends to a large extent on coverage provided by the sensor deployment. Mainly this paper considers the fundamental problems of a dynamic sensor network, the coverage. Localization of mobile sensors is a challenging issue, and the same is solved by developing a spatial addressing scheme for mobile sensor networks for locating mobile sensors relative to the field. The hexagonal Cell based management model for localization is used, as the hexagon gives a better representation of circular field sensor nodes, which maximizes the coverage with minimum overlapping. A Self Configuring Distributed Deployment Algorithm, which assures complete coverage of a given sensing field, is proposed in this paper.
