The self-organizational ability of ad-hoc Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has led them to be the most popular choice in ubiquitous computing. Clustering sensor nodes organizing them hierarchically have proven to be an effective method to provide better data aggregation and scalability for the sensor network while conserving limited energy. It has some limitation in energy and mobility of nodes. In this paper, the authors propose a mobility prediction technique which tries overcoming above mentioned problems and improves the life time of the network. The technique used here is Exponential Moving Average for online updates of nodal contact probability in cluster based network.
