Aimed at the path coverage problem for wireless multimedia sensor networks, MTPCA (Moving Target based Path Coverage-enhancing Algorithm) algorithm is proposed. This algorithm introduces the improved probabilistic model into the virtual potential field based directional sensor network coverage. In order to correct the centroid position of sector area covered by sensor node in traditional probabilistic model, this algorithm puts forward the concept of coverage impact factor to obtain better coverage effect. Furthermore, in MTPCA, multimedia sensor nodes acquire the real-time position information of target point through the discretization of the path curve.
