Clustering, Wireless Networks, Stability, Optimization


Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) play a pivotal role in a myriad of applications ranging from environmental monitoring to industrial automation. Clustering sensor nodes is a critical technique to enhance network efficiency, prolong network lifetime, and reduce energy consumption. However, existing clustering protocols often face challenges in achieving high throughput and stability, especially in environments characterized by increased levels of heterogeneity. In this paper, we propose a novel clustering scheme named Increased Sectorization Enhanced Protocol (ISEP) tailored to address these challenges. Through rigorous simulations and real-world experimentation, we demonstrate that ISEP outperforms existing schemes in terms of throughput and stability, making it a promising solution for diverse WSN deployments.
