In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), sensor nodes are sense the data from environment according to its functionality and forwards to its base station. This process is called data collection. The data collection process is done in either direct or multi-hop routing. This data collection process consumes more energy in WSN. Data aggregation is one of the energy conservation techniques. Selection of optimized aggregate node plays the vital role when collecting the data from sensor nodes. This paper introduces a new mechanism for data aggregation based on river formation dynamics.
