Since wireless sensor network has limited resources, it's important to design its task allocation algorithm reasonably to reduce energy consumption. The contract net is simple and flexible so that it can meet the needs of the wireless sensor network. In this paper, we introduce the improved C-MEANS algorithm to cluster nodes to decrease the number of bidders, and at the same time, the LMS algorithm is adopted to predict the bid value of the nodes. The simulation results show that the energy consumption and traffic flow are reduced, and the bid value more accurately reflects the status of the node when allocated tasks, which increased the complete rate of network tasks.
