The Coverage Control Technology is one of the basic technologies of wireless sensor network, and is mainly concerned about how to prolong the network lifetime on the basis of meeting users' perception demand. Among this, in the study of area coverage, the set K-cover algorithm is broadly accepted because that it can prolong network lifetime rather well. However, the existing set K-cover algorithms are centralized, and can not adapt to the large-scale sensor network applications and expansion. Game theory is a kind of decision theory, which is concerned with the situation where players directly interact with each other and can from the angle of participant's rational favor look for root of influence on macro-construction.
