Weighted Dynamic Distributed Clustering Protocol for Heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Network
In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), conserving energy and increasing lifetime of the network are a critical issue that has been addressed by substantial research works. The clustering technique has been proven particularly energy-efficient in WSN. The nodes form groups (clusters) that include one cluster head and member clusters. Cluster Heads (CHs) are able to process, filter, gather the data sent by sensors belonging to their cluster and send it to the base station. Many routing protocols which have been proposed are based on heterogeneity and use the clustering scheme such as SEP and DEEC.
