In this paper, the authors enhance the performance of the ECRSEP using enhanced CH selection and segment based optimization. The sensor field optimization is a dangerous problem in wireless sensor networks and has been ignored by several researchers. As in numerous real-time sensing fields the sensor nodes on the corners i.e. on the segment boundaries will become lifeless before time because no special safety is available for them. Therefore, in this paper the major objective is on the segment based optimization by separating the sensor field among advance segments and normal segments.
