Energy management is the prime issue in the domain of Sensor networks where the deployment process requires a continuous resource of energy. Most of the energy required during communication over the network results a need of energy conserving routing protocols in sensor networks. This paper demonstrates a new protocol GHHECR (Group Head Hierarchical Energy Conserving Routing) aiming of maximizing the network lifetime. The paper forms in this way that firstly, it explores the neural network based determination of Group Head amongst the competitive sensor nodes and further it extends to the authors' proposed protocol.
