In this paper, the authors present a hybrid approach to improving the network lifetime and coverage/connectivity of wireless sensor network. Here they apply a new deployment scheme with GA based routing to improve network lifetime and coverage. GA based clustering on routing is used in this paper to select the path for data transfer in such a way that total energy consumption along the path is minimized. Coverage is another important factor in wireless sensor network. The position of sensor nodes must also be providing maximum coverage.
