A WSN can be defined as a network of devices, denoted as nodes, which can sense the environment and communicate the information gathered from the monitored field (e.g., an area or volume) through wireless links. The data is forwarded, possibly via multiple hops, to a sink that can use it locally or is connected to other networks (e.g., the Internet) through the gateway. The existing concept uses a Link-aware Clustering Mechanism, called LCM, to determine an energy-efficient and reliable routing path from source node to sink.
