ABSTRACT

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) consist of a number of nodes and one or two base stations (BS). Each node has limited energy. Therefore, the energy each node is very important parameter in network since accessing the nodes and re-charging them are difficult or in some cases, are impossible. Thus, the main purpose of this article is to increase the lifetime of the wireless sensor networks by finding the optimal route to send the data to the base station in order to save the energy of each node. In this paper, a hybrid clustering method called Hybrid based on Bayesian Networks (HBN) is proposed based on Bayesian network which considers the radio range of each nodes. In this algorithm, four different parameters are considered including residual energy, the distance to the base station, distance to the neighbor nodes and the radio range of the sensor nodes. According to the simulation results, this algorithm enables an increase in network lifetime in comparison to other similar algorithms.
