In this paper, the authors explore energy exploitation in a sensor network deployed under diverse configurations. They are looking at sensor network deployed using multi hop, clustering, direct and mobility based transmission. A lot of work has been done using these mechanisms to convey sensor data to the base station by taking energy into consideration. This paper is to present an analysis of energy utilization using these techniques by comparing energy usage at different parts of the network. The outcome of the analysis helps researchers to identify the best mechanism for energy efficient communication in sensor network.
