The key challenge in the design and operation of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is the maximization of system lifetime. Node clustering is commonly considered as one of the most promising techniques for dealing with the given challenge, and as such has been referred to by many researchers. It is interesting to observe, however, that very few, if any, published research works provide explicit analysis of node clustering in WSNs and/or manage to prove its actual effectiveness. In this paper we… CONTINUE READING
