A multihop routing protocol for wireless sensor network based on grid clustering

Due to limited sensor nodes energy in wireless sensor network, it is very important to save the energy for prolonging networks lifetime. Clustering is a successful approach in wireless sensor network, which can increases network lifetime and scalability.

A multihop routing protocol based on grid clustering is proposed to improve networks performance in wireless sensor network. Detailed analysis and simulation result reveals that the proposed algorithm when compared with some existing algorithm increases the wireless network lifetime.
