Improving Network Life Time using Static Cluster Routing for Wireless Sensor Networks


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) with a large number of tiny sensor nodes can be used as an effective tool for gathering data in various situations. Hierarchical cluster based routing protocol were proposed for increasing network lifetime in the WSN. Major issues of cluster based routing protocol are power consumption and over heading which reduces the overall lifetime of the sensor network. In this project we propose a new static clustering protocol technique which partitions the network into static clusters with static cluster heads, eliminating the dynamic over heading and reduces the power consumption thereby improving the performance of the network. The performance of the proposed algorithm will be evaluated with the help of network simulation tool.
