The most challengeable issue in wireless sensor networks is the limited energy of their nodes that are distributed in a field for collecting information from the environment. Thus, energy efficiency and lifetime of these networks consider one of important and controversial issues in this field. In this paper, a new energy effective routing algorithm is presented which is based on static clustering and multi-hop transmission. The Static Clustering Based Multi-hop Routing (SCMR) algorithm is verified with MATLAB simulator. Simulation results show that the new method compared to previous methods such as LEACH, could balances the energy consumption, thus increase the stable period of network.
