EECDC: Energy Efficient Coverage Aware Data Collection in Wireless Sensor Networks


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.
