Distance Based Clustering Algorithm for Energy Efficiency in Wireless Sensor Networks


Article Preview

In wireless sensor networks Energy-efficient routing is an important issue due to the limited battery power within the network, Energy consumption is one of the important performance factors. Specifically for the election of cluster head selection and distance between the cluster head node and base station. The main objective of this proposed system is to reduce the energy consumption and prolong the network lifetime. This paper introduces a new clustering algorithm for energy efficient routing based on a cluster head selection
