Wireless sensor networks are presently a growing area as they form a platform for many applications associated to surroundings monitoring, fitness and wellbeing, supervision and military surveillance. One of the major design aspects of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is the sensor node deployment strategy. The deployment strategy is vital because it can affect the performance of the network. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) based tool was created using Matlab for deployment of sensors in a WSN. The GUI uses a GA to deploy the sensors in order to achieve the maximum coverage. The GUI allows the user to choose the dimension of area where sensors need to deploy, number of nodes need to deploy, radius of the sensors nodes, etc. It uses the Binary Detection Model for evaluating the coverage.
