Energy efficiency has been known as the most significant problem in all facets of the wireless sensor network operations. In this paper, we propose a meta-data-based data aggregation scheme in the clustering wireless sensor networks. For all sensor nodes in the sensing range of an event can detect the event and generate the sensing data, the cluster head will receive the sensing data packets about the same event, and there is likely to be some redundancy. In our scheme, only one of the sensor nodes within the sensing range of an event in a cluster is selected to transmit the sensing data to the cluster head via the meta data negotiation. We also evaluate this scheme with the LEACH protocol. The simulation results show that the cluster protocol with our data aggregation scheme is effective in prolonging the network lifetime and supporting scalable data aggregation.
