Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a rapidly growing area for IoT based research and applications. The main concern of research in WSN is to organize the node with different abilities including sensing range, communication range in the wireless network and route the detected data from the nodes to a central sink with dynamism. Clustering or Sector Formation is a key network employed to lengthen the lifespan of WSN by reducing energy utilization. LEACH is a sector algorithm in which the sector heads are arbitrarily chosen from the nodes and utilized to identify the solution with a better location to yield the energy loss sector heads. However, the non-optimal selection of sector head in LEACH cause the lesser lifespan of WSN. To overcome these issues, the Modified Quadrature-LEACH (MQ-LEACH) scheme is proposed in this paper which efficiently formed the sectors by selecting the optimal sector heads in the network. The simulation will be conducted in the NS2 environment where the essential parameters are evaluated for both proposed and existing methods. Further, the proposed scheme improves the network lifespan and stability period compared to existing schemes.
