An algorithm to study network sensors lifetime versus target zones coverage is implemented for a number of cases of different configurations and sensor-target failure probabilities. The algorithm is simulated on a Matlab platform with step-by-step evaluations of the case studies. The main goal is to maximize the lifetimes of sensors by sharing sensors subsets which cover a number of targeted zones, according to their minimum coverage failure probabilities. Different sensor subsets are energized according to their coverage failure probabilities, and minimum required value of coverage failure probability.
