Minimization of the number of cluster heads in a wireless sensor network is a very important problem to reduce channel contention and to improve the efficiency of the algorithm when executed at the level of cluster-heads. This paper proposes a Self Organizing Sensor (SOS) network based on an intelligent clustering algorithm which does not require many user defined parameters and random selection to form clusters like in Algorithm for Cluster Establishment (ACE). The proposed SOS algorithm is compared with ACE and the empirical results clearly illustrate that the SOS algorithm can reduce the number of cluster heads.

    In large-scale wireless sensor networks, due to the randomly movements of nodes and a sink, the network topology is changing frequently. Because nodes and the sink do not know the position each other, they can't communicate with each other well. If nodes use the method of broadcast to send their...

    Sensor nodes have significant power constraints (battery life). Thus, power-aware approaches must be employed to prolong the network lifetime. However, most of the literature considers only routing-based approaches to prolong it. In this paper, we propose an index-based approach that provides a...
