In large-scale wireless sensor networks, a new mechanism for gathering data is proposed by incorporating mobility into the network. A mobile collector is used to gather data from the sensor nodes. A robot or vehicle with a powerful battery and transceiver can be used as a mobile collector. The lifetime of the sensor nodes in wireless sensor is maximized. This is achieved by minimizing the length of each data-gathering tour. This method improves scalability and ensures that energy consumption among sensors is uniform.
