Self-organization clustering is based on a variety of studies for MWSNs (Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks) as well as WSNs (Wireless Sensor Networks). The size of the sensor field in mobile wireless sensor networks is often larger than in WSNs. When the sensor field is too large, energy inefficiency may result when cluster-heads broadcast an Advertisement Message over the sensor field area. In this paper, the authors calculate the optimal transmission range for broadcasting an advertisement message efficiently.
