This letter proposes a novel mobile sensor deployment scheme for maximizing coverage. The basic idea is to force mobile sensors to move to predetermined target points that are the optimal layout in a distributed manner using Voronoi diagram data structure. A simulation shows that the result of the proposed scheme is quite close to the optimal result and outperforms previous works.
