A wireless sensor network essentially consists of thousands of standalone nodes which are battery operated and remotely active. They are programmed in such a way as to monitor parameters and report anomalies or simply act as transceivers over long distances depending on the application they are used for. This paper proposed a modified version of PEGASIS to reduce the energy consumption in wireless sensor networks. Here, the standard PEGASIS was modified and the performance of the routing was carried. It can be proved that the routing protocol discussed in this paper required minimum energy compared to normal PEGASIS. Two possible routing algorithm was implemented and results are discussed.
