An energy efficient protocol for wireless sensor networks

By Andrea Depedri, Alberto Zanella and Roberto Verdone


Abstract — Networking together hundreds or thousands of cheap microsensor nodes allows users to accurately monitor a remote environment by intelligently combining the data from the individual nodes. These wireless networks require robust routing protocols that are energy efficient and provide low latency. Starting from the basic idea of classical LEACH (Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy), in this paper we introduce some innovations in the algorithm giving origin to LEACH-B. LEACH-B presents a new strategy of cluster heads election and cluster formation. Our results show that LEACH-B optimizes system lifetime in a large range of situations and applications
