This paper presents an efficient algorithm, NEAR, that allows sensor nodes to acquire their off-duty eligibility. Any node only needs to calculate the coverage degrees of the intersections on its sensing boundary, and cooperates with its neighbors to know if it is redundant or not. The computing complexity of NEAR is only O(nlogn).
