This study introduces a geographical multi-layered clustering protocol for ad hoc wireless sensor networks (WSNs), where the size of clusters is variable so that the closer clusters to the base station (BS) have a smaller size than farther ones. Moreover, in each cluster, using some intelligent fuzzy rules and in a decentralised way, a novel subtree strategy is determined. In this way, some parent nodes are chosen that are responsible for collecting and aggregating data from their adjacent… CONTINUE READING
