In this paper, the authors propose an Intercluster-Chaining Protocol with Neighbor Node for Energy Efficient Data Collection (ICCPNN) in Wireless Sensor Networks to prolonging network lifetime and low energy consumption and reduce transmission delay of data. ICCPNN use Neighboring nodes for data collection that are chained with Cluster Head (CH). ICCPNN organizes sensor nodes into clusters by using multiple distance metrics and constructs a chain with Neighbor Node. Neighbor Node is elected based on its minimum distance between the CH and elected Neighbor Node construct a chain among the sensor nodes within cluster so that each sensor node receives data from a previous neighbor and transmits to a next neighbor.
