Abstract:

A Wireless Sensor Network is a network of sensors with capabilities to sense particular entities related to environment, to process data locally & to communicate information to the Base Station. The self- organizational ability of ad-hoc Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has led them to be the most popular choice in ubiquitous computing. Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks is the most challenging issues due to several individualities that distinguish them from existing communication networks. Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) Protocol is one of the renowned hierarchical routing approaches for Wireless Sensor Networks. This paper presents a novel clustering hierarchy using evenly distributed clusters in terms of energy consumption & number of nodes. The proposed approach improves the life span of the network & amount of data transmitted to the BS.
