The paper proposes a distributed active sensor selection scheme, named DASS, for WSNs, under the requirement of complete coverage of a sensing field. By means of Voronoi diagram, the sensor can find appropriate sensors to work together for the sensing tasks. DASS can find as few number of sensors as possible to be in charge of the sensing task. Simulation results show that DASS can efficiently select few sensors to cover the whole sensing field. Furthermore, the network lifetime can be protracted significantly in comparison with the state-of-the-art schemes.
