The coverage framework and the installation policies are straightforwardly linked to the feasible distribution of the restricted resources for the wireless sensor network like node energy, transmission bandwidth and energy for estimation along with the quality enhancement which is immensely resolved for the wireless sensor networks. A three-dimensional coverage model and installation scheme are designed which initially performs an assessment of the usual polyhedron frameworks in the three-dimensional prospects, a coverage model based on cuboids is proposed. The association among the coverage and sensor nodes is assumed along with the minimal number of sensor nodes to preserve the network regions comprehensive coverage is estimated. Lastly, the sensor nodes are installed based on the coverage model after the observation region which is subclassified into restricted three-dimensional grids. The results of analysis reveal that the evaluation against the conventional arbitrary schemes, the sensor number of sensor nodes are minimized efficiently based on the precise ratio of coverage employing the coverage framework and deterministic installation methods.
