The occurrence of ‘sensing holes’ not only hinders seamless data collection but also leads to misinterpretation of information in certain areas under extensive data analysis. In order to overcome this, various sensor relocation strategies have been proposed, but the existing relocation strategies revealed problems such as the ping-pong, shaded area, network disconnection, etc. This paper conducted research on relocation protocols in a distributed environment that is very suitable for real-world situations and efficiently recovering the problem of sensing holes. First, a simulation was performed on the distribution of the shaded area for data collection, which is a problem with the existing representative relocation protocol. After that, a data collection capability was newly added to the relay node, which had been in charge of only communication between cluster zones so far, and with this additional functionality, the performance of the revised sensor relocation algorithm was dramatically improved to overcome the existing problems. In addition, the performance and validity of the proposed algorithm were verified through various simulations.
