Multi-level Clustering Architecture for Wireless Sensor Networks

Yulin He, Won-Sik Yoon and Jai-Hoon Kim

Recently wireless sensor networks have received increasing attention from the research community. One of the key design challenges in wireless sensor network is conserving the sensor nodes’ energies, so as to maximize their lifetime. Clustering technique has proved to be a fundamental mechanism to increases network lifetime and scalability. This study was proposed a novel distributed clustering approach to organize the sensors in a wireless sensor network into clusters. Based on this algorithm, generate a multi-level clustering architecture in a top-down fashion and observe that the energy consumption decrease with the number of levels in the hierarchy. Numerical analysis was also given on the basis of the result from stochastic geometry.
