PROJECT TITLE :
Energy Efficient Clustering Scheme for Prolonging the Lifetime of Wireless Sensor Network With Isolated Nodes
A suitable clustering algorithm for grouping sensor nodes can increase the energy efficiency of WSNs. However, clustering requires additional overhead, such as cluster head selection and assignment, and cluster construction. This paper proposes a new regional energy aware clustering method using isolated nodes for WSNs, called Regional Energy Aware Clustering with Isolated Nodes (REAC-IN). In REAC-IN, CHs are selected based on weight. Weight is determined according to the residual energy of each sensor and the regional average energy of all sensors in each cluster. Improperly designed distributed clustering algorithms can cause nodes to become isolated from CHs. Such isolated nodes communicate with the sink by consuming excess amount of energy. To prolong network lifetime, the regional average energy and the distance between sensors and the sink are used to determine whether the isolated node sends its data to a CH node in the previous round or to the sink. The simulation results of the current study revealed that REAC-IN outperforms other clustering algorithms.
