For wireless sensor networks, how to efficiently utilize limited energy directly affects the lifetime and the cost. LEACH is a clustering-based protocol with good performance, which employs localized coordination to balance the energy usage. In this paper, an improved LEACH protocol is proposed with a more reasonable set-up phase. The proposed protocol focuses on saving the energy cost induced due to redundant nodes and balancing the energy consumption among sensor nodes by splitting large… CONTINUE READING
