Geographical Grid Based Clustering for WSN
In this work, we have proposed a clustering approach in WSN using grid formation. Clustering is an approach which works on distances thus efficiently conserves communication energy in WSN. In the proposed grid based clustering approach, the simulation area is divided into number of grids and each grid has a coordinator node which is receiving the data from normal nodes. The data is passed in the form of packets. The efficiency of the network also depends on the size of packet while delivering. This paper also addresses the role of packet size in different grid sizes measuring the suitable cluster size according to the application in WSN based on percentage of packet loss. Moreover, we have also evaluated proposed techniques on different packet sizes over WSN. Results and simulations prove the efficacy of the scheme and make it attractive and viable for WSN.
