Abstract

From energy conservation perspective inWireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), clustering of sensor nodes is a challenging task. Clustering technique in routing protocols play a key role to prolong the stability period and lifetime of the network. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a new routing protocol for WSNs. Our protocol; Divide-and-Rule (DR) is based upon static clustering and dynamic Cluster Head (CH) selection technique. This technique selects fixed number of CHs in each round instead of probabilistic selection of CH. Simulation results show that DR protocol outperform its counterpart routing protocols. © 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
