Clustering provides an effective way for extending the lifetime of a sensor network. In this paper, we propose a novel voting-based clustering algorithm (VCA) for energy-efficient data dissemination in quasi-stationary sensor networks. This new approach lets sensors vote for their neighbors to elect suitable cluster heads. Unlike traditional distributed clustering algorithms, VCA combines load balancing, energy and topology information together by using very simple voting mechanisms. This new… CONTINUE READING
