In this paper, efficient power saving scheme and corresponding algorithm must be developed and designed in order to provide reasonable energy consumption and to improve the network lifetime for wireless sensor network systems. The cluster-based technique is one of the approaches to reduce energy consumption in wireless sensor networks. In this paper, the authors propose a saving energy clustering algorithm to provide efficient energy consumption in such networks. The main idea of this paper is to reduce data transmission distance of sensor nodes in wireless sensor networks by using the uniform cluster concepts.
