Wireless camera-based sensor networks have emerged as an important class of sensor-based distributed intelligent systems. These networks consist of large number of low-power camera nodes to monitor an environment such as airports, museums, traffic control, military applications etc. The most important problems in smart networks are camera coverage control that allows automatic tracking of targets and monitoring the environment. As this problem is NP-hard, so Meta heuristic methods such as

Simulation results show that the distributed genetic algorithm results near-optimal solution faster than the genetic algorithm.
