Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have a large amount of real-time applications with tiny and energy utilized sensors. The network topology separates the sensors into several clusters. In this paper we propose an Impartial Clustering Algorithm, which enables the cluster formation without any requirement of set-up overhead. The proposed algorithm nominates one node called as Adjacent node to gather data from other sensor nodes. It also maintains the load balancing technique to ensure that all the sensor nodes will die only when they transmit all their data in the network within the time to live. The experimental results proved that the proposed work performed well when compared with all the other related works in terms of energy utilization and load balancing.
