ABSTRACT

Mobile Ad-Hoc network (MANET) is a type of communication network which is used for data communication between a mobile nodes using wireless channels. Clustering has evolved as an important research topic in MANETs as it improves the system performance of large MANETs. Clustering is a process that divides the network into nodes groups, called clusters. Each cluster has a Cluster Head (CH) as coordinator within the substructure. This paper proposes a clustering technique for MANETs, which is weighted clustering algorithm. The performances of this algorithm is evaluated through simulation and the results are encouraging.
