In this paper, the authors evaluate the clustering as energy and coverage enhancement approach for Wireless Sensor Network(WSN). The paper includes the proposed scheme which is an amendment to LEACH protocol and involves a unique node scheduling and a fitness function to enhance coverage in each round. The algorithm employs a distinct rotation of cluster heads in order to ensure balance in energy consumption and coverage requirements which can ultimately lead to enhancing the Quality of Service (QoS) related to the surveillance which in turn leads in maximizing lifetime of network.
