A Robust Energy-Efficient Cluster-Based Routing Protocol for Mobile Wireless Sensor Network
The mobile wireless sensor network is a promising technology having a wide number of applications. The sensor nodes are mobile and able to communicate with each other in an ad hoc manner. Due to mobility, it outperforms the static wireless sensor network as MWSN increases the throughput, network lifetime, and reduces energy consumption. Mobile sensor network has better ability to monitor the target area than static sensor network. However, the routing protocol in mobile environment is complex in resource constraints MWSN. So, it is required to develop an energy-efficient routing protocol to improve network performance. In this paper, a robust energy-efficient cluster-based routing protocol is proposed. The energy-rich node is selected as cluster head with minimum velocity for maximum connectivity among the cluster members. Selection of reliable forwarder improves network performance. Extensive simulation study is carried out to evaluate the performance of the proposed routing protocol with respect to delay, throughput, PDR, and total energy consumption.
