Re-Cluster Node on Unequal Clustering Routing Protocol Wireless Sensor Networks for Improving Energy Efficient
Source: NORTH ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY UNION
Clustering in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is an important technique for increasing the lifetime of a wireless sensor network. Organizing wireless sensor networks into clusters enables the efficient utilization of the limited energy resources of the deployed sensor nodes. However, the problem of unbalanced energy consumption exists, and it primarily depends on the role and on the location of a node in the network. If the network is organized into heterogeneous clusters, it is important to ensure that energy dissipation of these cluster head nodes is balanced. It should also be ensured that the hot spot problem would not occur, because in multi-hop the node is burdened from the relay data to the base station.
