Energy efficiency is the key problem in wireless sensor networks. The authors address this issue through cooperative protocols and extend their theory with computational intelligence. In this paper, they present a clustered cooperative communication protocol for establishment of cooperative clusters during transmission of data in a cooperative way. Different with other papers, they import computational intelligence into their clustered cooperative protocol for optimization. First, they propose the cooperative cluster model, detail the operation process. The packet failure probability of their clustered cooperative protocol is derived.
