    Coverage is one of the metrics used to quantify the quality of service (QoS) of sensor networks. In general, we use this term to measure the ability of the network to interact with – observe or react to – the phenomena taking place in the area of interest. In addition, coverage is associated with connectivity and energy consumption, both important aspects of the design process of a Wireless Sensor
    Network (WSN). This paper aims at offering a critical overview and presentation of the problem as well as the main strategies developed so far.
