We present a novel approach that would enable the placement of dynamic sensor platforms in the most optimal areas for data collection in an environment of any size. Our approach would ensure that more sensors are placed in areas that contain interesting data and less in areas with little or no data. In this paper, we use a bacteria controller to navigate the environment in the search of interesting data and show that the addition of a flocking algorithm improves the chances of finding data.
