An Energy-Aware Distributed Unequal Clustering Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

  title={An Energy-Aware Distributed Unequal Clustering Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks},
  author={Jiguo Yu and Yingying Qi and Gang Wang and Qiang Guo and Xin Gu},
Due to the imbalance of energy consumption of nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), some local nodes die prematurely, which causes the network partitions and then shortens the lifetime of the network. The phenomenon is called “hot spot” or “energy hole” problem. For this problem, an energy-aware distributed unequal clustering protocol (EADUC) in multihop heterogeneous WSNs is proposed. Compared with the previous protocols, the cluster heads obtained by EADUC can achieve balanced energy… CONTINUE READING
