Dual step hybrid routing protocol for network lifetime enhancement in WSN-IoT environment

Kalpavi C. Yankanaik, Sujatha B. Munivenkatappa


Recent development in internet of things (IoT) has been generating huge data due to the large number of nodes deployed and utilized for different applications. In addition, these applications utilize big data and require a more efficient mechanism for data sensing and data transmission. This research work proposes dual step hybrid routing (DSHR) protocol for efficient cluster-based routing. It comprises a two-phase algorithm, which aims at finding the optimal path considering clustering. It further comprises several processes such as cluster head selection, optimal path construction, integrating of nodes to cluster head and sensing range optimization. DSHR is evaluated considering the network lifetime; thereafter model is compared with the existing low energy adaptive clustering hierarchy (LEACH) protocol to prove the efficiency.
