Due to the problem of balance for energy consumption in underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs), a cluster-based routing protocol for UWSNs based on an improved K-means algorithm was proposed. This algorithm was used for clustering in underwater sensor networks to avoid unbalanced clustering which could happen in LEACH protocol. Considering the depth of nodes and their densities around, the initial centers of clusters can be selected by the maximum distance method. The master cluster heads… CONTINUE READING
