ABSTRACT
Whereas the energy constraint is one of the most important restrictions in wireless sensor networks so the energy balancing is essential for prolonging the network lifetime. In the recent years many protocols have been proposed for clustering on wireless sensor network to balance the energy consumption. This paper proposes a new clustering protocol namely EBHCR which uses hierarchical dynamic routing algorithm. This algorithm selects a best sensor node in terms of energy, number of neighbors and distance as a cluster head. Simulation results show that the EBHCR prolongs the network lifetime about 45% compared to the LEACH.
