This paper addresses an adaptive and dynamic localized scheme unique to hierarchical clustering protocols in wireless sensor networks, while reducing the consumption of residual energy of cluster heads and as a result delivering a prolonged sensor network lifetime. Our proposed scheme, low-energy localized clustering (LLC) aims to minimize energy consumption of cluster heads while the entire sensor network is still being covered. For achieving this goal, LLC dynamically regulates the radius of each cluster. Through a simulation based performance of this algorithm, LLC, we show that our novel cluster radius configuration algorithm achieves the desirable properties.
