Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) detect and monitor the outside physical state by the sensor nodes organizing automatically. Utilizing clustering algorithm to form hierarchical network topology is the common method which implements managing network and aggregating data in WSNs. Different from the previous clustering algorithms, this article proposes a clustering algorithm for WSNs based on distance and distribution to generate clusters considering residual energy of nods in WSNs with inhomogeneous distribution. The simulation result indicates that the algorithm can establish more balanceable clustering structure effectively and enhance the network life cycle obviously.
