Controlled SINK Mobility Clustering Protocol for Multi-Hop Wireless Sensor Network

Authors(2) :-D. Deepika, R. Prabha

Sink mobility has been utilized in numerous schemes to prolong the lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Among the many ways of improving the performance of a WSN in terms of crucial metrics such as its lifetime and data latency, utilizing the mobility of some of the network components has been recently observed to be among the most promising. Regardless of its numerous advantages, delivering of the data to the mobile sink is a challenging task for the limited resource sensor nodes. Sink mobility causes the dynamic network topology. Data delivery consumes more energy and it can be reduced using sink mobility. The mobility of sink causes regular updating of its location in order to deliver the data packets. Here controlled sink mobility is used for the path routing of mobile sink and the parameters like energy efficiency, control overhead, data delivery rate are simulated and compared with existing uncontrolled sink mobility.
