A WSN computer network using sensors is used in important application like environmental monitoring warning dangers to human lives. WSN"s may have several problems related to topology construction, maintenance, and connectivity. The deployed Sensor devices may have critical resource constraints in terms of energy consumption. Also the algorithms need to be memory-efficient. Algorithmic issues arise in sensor deployment and coverage, routing, and fusion. Applications which rely on timely sensor

WSN applications may be in operation for months without wired power supplies, thus requiring to meet the delay requirements at minimum energy cost. Though various algorithms and protocols have been proposed for deploying sensors This paper proposes a new Algorithm CN Algorithm for WSNs and discusses WSNs. Future work includes the extension of the algorithm to detect the coverage boundary of the network or area covered by the sensor nodes inside a network. General Terms Wireless Sensor Networks, Border Discovery.
