A Power Efficient Cluster-Based Data Aggregation Protocol for WSN (MHML)

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a network of an inexpensive low coverage, sensing, and computation nodes. The difference between the wireless networks and WSN is that sensors are sensitive to energy consumption. In design of routing protocols for WSN the energy saving is the crucial issue. Till today many protocols have been proposed for energy efficiency in continuous driven clustered sensor network. In this paper, the authors propose a modification in Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) protocol. Their modified protocol is considering residual energy as a criterion for a node to be a cluster head during Cluster head selection and Clusters setup phase.
