Central to the cluster-based routing protocols is the cluster head (CH) selection procedure that allows even distribution of energy consumption among the sensors, and therefore prolonging the lifespan of a sensor network. We propose a distributed CH selection algorithm that takes into account the distances from sensors to a base station that optimally balances the energy consumption among the sensors. NS-2 simulations show that our proposed scheme outperforms existing algorithms in terms of the average node lifespan and the time to first node death.
