An Energy-Aware Clustering Approach for Ad-Hoc Sensor Networks

Authors(2) :-Venkateswarulu Naik B., Dr. S. Rama Krishna

An Energy a ware Clustering work has different approaches to routing protocol designs that achieve energy efficiency in a Ad-hoc Sensor network. Several of these works involve variations of mote-to-mote routing (flat routing) while some make use of leader nodes in clusters to perform routing (hierarchical routing). A key question then arises as to how the performance of an energy-aware, flat routing protocol compare with that of one based on hierarchical routing. This paper demonstrates a hierarchical routing protocol design that can conserve significant energy in its setup phase as well as during its steady state data dissemination phase. This paper describes the design of this protocol and evaluates its performance against existing energy-aware flat routing protocols. Simulation results show that it exhibits competitive performance against the flat routing protocols.
