Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) most popular area of research where lots of work done are in this field. Energy efficiency is one of the most focusing areas because the lifetime of the network is the most common issue. Many algorithms work for cluster and these algorithms form cluster either distance or neighbor node. In our study, we focus on node deployment approach and after that, we focus on routing algorithm. In the Wireless Sensor Network, the node placement is the essential part for the proper communication between the sensor nodes and Base Station (BS). For better communication nodes should be aware of their own or neighbor node’s location. Better optimization of resources and performance improvement are the main concern for the Wireless Sensor Network. Optimal techniques should be utilized to place the nodes at the best possible locations for achieving the desired goal. For node placement, flower pollination optimization is used to generate the better result. Base Station is responsible for the communication of nodes with each other and it should be reachable to nodes. For this Region of Interest (RoI) is helpful to choose the best location. Placement of Base Station in the middle is the suitable place for the static nodes deployment and there should be another strategy for the dynamic environment. Nodes should be connected to each other for the transmission of data from the source to Base Station properly. From the MATLAB simulation, it has been shown that the proposed methodology improves the network performance in terms of dead nodes, energy and the various packets sent to Base Station.
