Communication voids have negative effect on real time routing protocols. Hence it needs to design an energy efficient communication void free routing protocol for wireless sensor network. A clustering and routing protocol is proposed in the present work. The proposed clustering algorithm is the combination of cluster head selection algorithm and cluster member selection algorithm. The proposed routing algorithm establishes an energy efficient communication void free route for delivering the sensed data to the base station. Both clustering and routing algorithm outperform the existing algorithms in terms of energy consumption and execution time of clustering algorithm, energy consumption, energy dissipation and transmission delay of routing algorithm.
