Using Coordinate based Mobile Sink Technique to Improve the Performance of Wireless Sensor Network


  • Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chandigarh University, Mohali - 140413, Punjab, India


Objectives: The main objectives of this research are to improve performance of LEACH protocol for data gathering by deploying multiple sinks. The movement of the sinks are depends upon the signal strength and bee colony algorithm. By using the proposed technique performance of LEACH protocol is increased. Method Analysis: To improve performance of LEACH protocol is improved by deploying multiple sinks and movement of the sinks are decided using bee colony. Findings: By Appling bee colony with LEACH protocol for multiple sink movement various energy parameters are analyzed and compared with existing algorithm. It is seen that energy consumption of the network reduced and network is increased. The improvement leads to batter data gathering from cluster heads and throughput of the network is increased.
