In recent years, many efforts have been made to achieve energy efficient and reliable wireless sensor network that will help to improve lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Lifetime improvement of WSNs is one of the challenges in recent years. For this, energy required to perform various tasks must be efficiently used such that energy consumption will be less. To achieve these requirements two protocols Actor Directed Clustering Protocol (ADCP) and Hybrid Energy Efficient Distributed (HEED) clustering protocol are developed.
