Wireless sensor network encompasses wide variety of applications. But it is most likely to have failure in communication due to the destruction of sensor nodes by sudden deployment from the aero plane or battery exhaustion. This of data forwarding by the ineffective nodes creates holes in the network. For maintaining effectiveness of the network these holes must be detected and healed. An effective solution called energy heal for hole detection and hole healing based on virtual forces is therefore proposed. Here the authors have chosen mobile wireless sensors to form the network due to its ability to self-organize the network.
