Shifting of Sink Position in Wireless Sensor Network
Bhagyesh Patel,  Prof. Dhiren Bhagat
Wireless sensor Network (WSN) has attracted much attention in recent years due to their potential use in much application such as border protection, combat field surveillance, disaster management and security surveillance. Given the critically of such application, a fundamental objective is a maintaining a dependable operation of the network. However, the resource-constrained nature of sensor nodes and the ad-hoc formation of the network, often coupled with an unattended deployment, pose non-conventional challenges and motivate the need for special techniques for dependable design and management of WSN. In wireless sensor networks, the major source of a sensor node failure is battery exhaustion and replacing this energy source in the field is usually not practical. Therefore, the use of energy efficient infrastructure, such as repositioning the sink in a clustered wireless sensor network, is able to prolong the lifetime of the network and improve the overall network data. In this project, an energy-efficient protocol for the repositioning of mobile sink using genetic algorithm in wireless sensor networks can improve the network lifetime, data delivery and energy consumption compared to existing energy-efficient protocols developed for this network.
