Energy efficient head node selection is the major issue in wireless sensor networks. Due to irregular node distribution energy consumption is not a balanced one in cluster-based wireless sensor networks. The proposed system provides techniques to rectify this problem through: (i) Forming Maximal Independent Set (MIS) (ii) Effective Set Head selection (iii) Multi-hop communication. Non adjacency of nodes has been leveraged for creating MIS. Intra-set energy consumption has been reduced by selecting a node as Set Head (SH), which is geographically nearer to all other nodes. Inter Set efficient energy consumption is achieved by using multi-hop communication between SH to BS. The proposed system EECDC forms more efficient and stable sets, which increases the lifetime of sensor networks i.e., Number of data collection rounds.
Keywords: Energy Efficient, Maximum Independent Set (MIS), Coverage, Wireless Sensor Networks.
