Executive Summary

In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), it is an important task to periodically collect data from an area of interest for time-sensitive applications. The Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a type of the wireless ad-hoc networks. It consists of a large number of sensors and those are effective for gathering data in a variety of environments. Clustered sensor networks can be classified into two broad types; homogeneous and heterogeneous sensor networks. In homogeneous networks all the sensor nodes are identical in terms of battery energy and hardware complexity. On the other hand, in a heterogeneous sensor network, two or more different types of nodes with different battery energy and functionality are used.
