By spreading the workload across a sensor network, load balancing reduces hot spots in the sensor network and increases the energy lifetime of the sensor network. In this paper, we design a node-centric algorithm that constructs a load-balanced tree in sensor networks of asymmetric architecture. We utilize a Chebyshev Sum metric to evaluate via simulation the balance of the routing trees produced by our algorithm. We find that our algorithm achieves routing trees that are more effectively balanced than the routing based on breadth-first search (BFS) and shortest-path obtained by Dijkstra's algorithm.
