Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks are known by cooperative endeavour of large deployment of sensors with limited battery power. One of the main challenges about these networks is how to minimize the energy consumption of sensor nodes which will lead to extended network life time. In this paper, we proposed an efficient protocol based on Map-Reduce computing model and a new clustering algorithm. In the proposed protocol, the cluster heads are determined based on the remaining energies of sensor nodes and their distance to base station. Experimental results with a prototype implementation of ScEP demonstrate considerable improvement in enhancing both network lifetime and residual energies of sensor nodes compared to when the two main related work, MRKCP and LEACH is used.
