Abstract

Energy optimised cluster formation for a set of randomly scattered wireless sensors is presented. Sensors within a cluster are expected to be communicating with a cluster head only. The cluster heads summarise and process sensor data from the clusters and maintain the link with the base station. The clustering is driven by the minimisation of energy for all the sensors. Recent developments in clustering are used to support the work, and a cluster visualisation interface is used to observe the simulation results.
