Dependability of the nodes in a group network is very important for its successful applications in the engineering area. Conventionally, when a node has a failure, it (i.e. data from that node) is usually discarded and the network is reorganized with faultless nodes to continue with the normal operation without a tradeoff with the functional coverage of the networks. In this paper, it is planned that the sensor nodes designed with self-healing ability can dynamically change their node configurations to repair during hardware failures. The work once integrated with an existing standalone target group nodes or Host/Target group communicating nodes can improve the robustness of the group network and reduce the maintenance cost when deployed in real time applications.
