Energy Efficient Cluster Formation in Wireless Sensor Networks Using Particle Swarm Optimization


Objective: To achieve the maximum possible lifetime of a network by efficient clustering and reducing the energy expended by sensor nodes. Methods/Analysis: Wireless Sensor Networks are an important part in today’s network infrastructure. With a great deal of importance given to minimized sensors due to the boom in Internet of Things combined with the traditional uses in military, pollution monitoring and gathering other geospatial data, WSNs are playing an ever increasing role in the technology sphere. The confinements of WSN incorporate the constrained battery life of the sensor hubs and the trouble in supplanting them on the field. Hence the most important criteria to be expand the lifetime of the system by minimising battery utilisation through efficient clustering algorithms. Findings: In our research, we have focused on using the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm for efficient clustering. The proposed model simulated through MATLAB.
