In this paper, concentrate on scheduling sensors between sleep and active modes to maximize network life time while maintaining target coverage and consuming minimum energy. In this work, we try to develop an Energy Aware Target Coverage Protocol in which we have considered that if a target is with in the receiving / transmitting range of two or more sensors nodes, then only one of the sensor node may be initiated to cover the specific target while the other sensor nodes of that receiving / transmitting range may not require to participate, which help to minimize participation of sensor nodes to cover the specific targets, there by consuming minimum energy. Our result analysis brings a considerable amount of energy saving without affecting the coverage problem.
