Internet of things (IoT) is a global infrastructure for the information society which enables advanced services by interconnecting physical and virtual things based on existing and evolving inter-operable information and communication technologies. Developing green IoT is a difficult task because IoT has more devices and has complex structure, so most of the current schemes for deploying nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) cannot be applied directly in IoT. In this paper, we propose a scheme which gives an energy-efficient IoT. Here, we propose two schemes for framework structure of a network, and then we propose clustering algorithms and routing algorithms for network formation which is based on minimum spanning tree. After numerous simulations, we show that these schemes result in minimal energy consumption and enhance the network lifetime. Thus, the proposed schemes are more energy-efficient compared to a typical WSN deployment scheme; hence, these schemes are applicable to the green IoT deployment. We show that in the proposed schemes, the nodes are alive for more number of rounds as compared to the existing algorithms.
