Energy, Distance and Duty cycle based Reclustering protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless sensor network is deployed with sensor nodes which are spatially distributed across a large area of interest to measure and gather information and transmit the data to the user. The nodes communicate with each other; they cooperate by forwarding data packets to other nodes in the network. One critical issue in the wireless sensor network is how to gather information in an efficient way. Clustering is a technique used to reduce the energy consumption in the network. Here we try to implement multiple hop communication and the consideration of duty cycle to reach the base station and the sensor nodes which are placed near the base station have a higher load of relaying packets. The result shows that EDDRP (Energy distance and duty cycle based Reclustering protocol) gives a longer lifetime to the nodes which enhances more data messages transmission than the other protocols.
