Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are being used to form large, dense networks for the purpose of long term environmental sensing and data collection. Unfortunately, these networks are typically deployed in remote environment where energy source are limited. WSN's, present a new generation of real-time embedded systems with limited computation, energy and memory resources that are being used in a wide variety of applications where traditional networking infrastructure is practically infeasible. Appropriate cluster-head node election can drastically reduce the energy consumption and enhance the lifetime of the network.
