Node deployment is the fundamental design issue of wireless sensor networks because the node location in the region of interest affects the fulfilment of application’s requirement as well as the other performance metrics. Work of this paper presents framework of a new deterministic node deployment strategy that finds the location of nodes in RoI for critical section with the resemblance of magnetic field lines. Experimental results signify that the proposed solution has coverage of nearly complete area.
