A modified cluster-head selection algorithm in wireless sensor networks based on LEACH - 2018

Research Area:  Wireless Sensor Networks


In order to overcome drawbacks of unreasonable cluster-head selection and excessive energy consumption in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), a modified cluster-head selection algorithm based on LEACH (LEACH-M) was proposed. Based on distributed address assignment mechanism (DAAM) of ZigBee, both residual energy and network address of nodes were taken into account to optimize cluster-head threshold equation. Furthermore, by leveraging a cluster-head competitive mechanism, LEACH-M successfully balanced the network energy burden and dramatically improved energy efficiency. The simulation results in NS-2.35 show that the proposed algorithm can prolong the network lifetime, minimize the energy consumption, and increase the amount of data received at base station whether region is in a 100 × 100m2or in a 300 × 300m2.
