Panditharathne, C C and Sen, S J (2009) Energy Efficient Communication Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks. BTech thesis.
The popularity of Wireless Sensor Networks have increased tremendously due to the vast potential of the sensor networks to connect the physical world with the virtual world. Since these devices rely on battery power and may be placed in hostile environments replacing them becomes a tedious task. Thus, improving the energy of these networks becomes important.The thesis provides methods for clustering and cluster head selection to WSN to improve energy efficiency. It presents a comparison between the different methods on the basis of the network lifetime . It proposes a modified approach for cluster head selection with good performance and reduced computational complexity .In addition it also proposes BFO as an algorithm for clustering of WSN which would result improved performance with faster convergence.
