Large number of sensor nodes can be used in WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) and these sensor nodes have limited amount of battery. The algorithm was proposed in pursuance of obtaining maximum lifetime of network. Firstly the area was partitioned into grid and scheduling of nodes based on grid optimization was introduced to enhance the packet delivery between the nodes. Clusters were formed for each grid and all the cluster heads took participation in data transmission. Algorithms with the energy saving and efficiently delivering data to the sink must be developed. However in these algorithms the energy efficiency is declined in the process to deliver data.
