Özet

Sensors and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are an important component of the Internet of Things (IoT) era. Sensors can be used in easily accessible areas such as factories; It is also used in places with difficult access, such as cultivated areas, forests etc. The most important constraint of sensors placed in areas where access is difficult is energy. Therefore, sensors need to spend as little energy as possible to communicate with each other. For this purpose, a number of studies were made concerning the optimization of energy in WSNs. Most of the studies are carried out in MAC and Routing Layers. In this study, we developed a new routing protocol called Base-Station Layered LEACH (BLLEACH) based on LEACH (Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy) routing protocol, which is one of the most significant benchmarks in WSNs. BLEACH divides the network into clusters in a multi-hop environment. Experimental results show that BLLEACH outperforms LEACH and MDLEACH (Multi-hop dynamic clustering LEACH) in terms of energy efficiency and throughput.
