Residual Energy Based Clustering for Energy EfficientWireless Sensor Networks
This chapter describes two types of clustering for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The goal of these methods is to prolong the life time of sensor nodes powered by batteries. The first type is a centralized method, and the second type is a distributed method. These methods effectively take into account the residual energy of sensor nodes. As a result, they achieve better performances than conventional methods such as LEACH, HEED and ANTCLUST.
