A Review on Prominent Clustering Protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is considered as most recent technology for data gathering. The sensor devices are made up of hundreds or thousands of sensor nodes deployed over a huge geographical area. Due to the limited power of the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), the network lifetime becomes a critical issue in WSN's. To enhancing the lifetime, clustering is becoming a most active branch of routing technology in WSNs. In this paper, the authors present a fine review on clustering protocols. In addition, they outline the objectives of clustering for WSNs. Finally, they summarize and conclude the paper.
