Mobile wireless sensor networks (Mobile-WSN) are useful in harsh environments due to the presence of obstacles and/or dangerous for sensors to be deployed deterministically. In this paper, we proposed a Physarum inspired autonomous, model for dynamic deployment of sensor nodes where multiple Physarum (as representation of sensors) will compete over food resources (interest points) based on chemo-attraction, and repulsion forces exerted by competing Physarums and obstacles. Our simulation results have demonstrated the high coverage performance of the model with minimal move overhead in the presence of obstacles with the least number of sensors.
