Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are wireless networks consisting of a group of small, inexpensive nodes, which collect and disseminate significant data. Nodes in a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have various energy and computational constraints due to their inexpensive, random method of deployment. Wireless Sensor Networks are utilized in a wide range of applications including battlefield surveillance, smart home environments, habitat exploration of animals and vehicle tracking. Energy efficiency is one critical issue for wireless sensor networks because many sensors are equipped with batteries that have limited life time.
