The rapid development in small, low-power, low-cost microelectronic and micro-electromechanical sensor technology along with the advances in wireless technology have enabled wireless sensors to be deploy in large quantities to form wireless sensor networks for a wide various of purpose, e.g., image creation of a target field, intrusion detection, surveillance and monitoring. Wireless sensor networks with thousands of small sensor nodes, are expected to locate wide applicability and increasing deployment in upcoming years, as they make possible reliable, monitoring and analysis of the environment. In this paper, the authors proposed to improve clustering algorithm to minimize the overhead of control packets and efficient utilization of nodes near sink by using LEACH and HEED Clustering algorithm and to implement a Hybrid Protocol Better than Existing Hybrid Protocol.
