Maximizing network lifetime and minimizing energy consumption are among the central concerns in the design of applications and protocols for wireless sensor networks (WSN). Clustering has been proven energy-efficient in sensor networks since data processing, filtering routing and relaying are operated only by cluster heads, thus reducing network load and alleviating the bandwidth. In this paper, we propose a novel distributed clustering algorithm where cluster heads are elected following a… CONTINUE READING
