Energy efficient with prolonging lifetime in homogeneous wireless sensor networks

Shaimaa Hadi, Hayder Rahm Dakheel, Atyaf Jarullah Yaseen


In this artical, we suggest a new clustering model called the Fuzzy Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy Protocol (FLEACH). It has the ability to go around obstacles and fix the issue of uneven energy consumption in homogenous wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In order to determine the best routing path for the homogeneous WSNs, we also suggest the Ant Colony Routing Method (ACORM), which is an energy-efficient routing technique. ACORM aims to investigate issues relating to balancing energy consumption and maximizing network life. To illustrate FLEACH-ACORM's effectiveness in managing energy consumption and optimizing homogeneous network life, we compare our system with two approaches: Power-Efficient Sensor Information Systems (PEGASIS) and LEACH. Results of the simulation indicate that the network lifetime achieved by FLEACH-ACORM could be increased by almost 28.5 % and 19.8 % more than that obtained by LEACHPEGASIS, LEACH clustering protocols, respectively.
