Simulating a Wireless Sensor Network


Consider a hierarchical WSN, where nodes are running LEACH protocol in order to reduce energy footprint. The concerned network is not so huge, and the expected number of cluster heads is three.

The animation on the right hand side illustrates the working principle of LEACH in the following four steps:

  1. Cluster head selection
  2. Cluster head advertisement
  3. Cluster formation
  4. Data transmission
