A Comprehensive Study on Cluster Based Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks


Background/Objectives: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have emerged as a new powerful tool and a rapidly growing technology, which consume a lesser amount of energy for processing and communication. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Most state-of-art reviews have concentrated on look over the various routing methods which have been suggested depends on the energy effectiveness and lifetime. This paper presents an extensive survey and performance analysis of cluster based routing methods for Wireless Sensor Networks and aims to identify current research issues in this area. Findings: There are number of routing procedures have been discussed, to progress their performance in wireless networks. In this study, we present a cluster based routing algorithms for WSNs which is highlighted with their features and objectives. Improvements/Applications: These algorithms were compared based on the metrics such as energy efficiency, data aggregation, route selection etc.

Keywords: Cluster based Routing, Energy Efficient, Reliability, Wireless Sensor Networks
