Improved network lifetime maximization in wireless sensor networks using aco algorithm for energy conservation

The use of Network Lifetime Maximization while disseminating queries to appropriate regions since data queries often include geographic attributes and apply Ant Colony Optimization clustering is proposed here. The protocol, uses energy aware and geographically-informed neighbor selection heuristics to route a packet towards the destination region to improve the link stability during data transfer and by applying the clustering algorithm, all the nodes are divided into clusters and a cluster head is selected in each cluster, which collects the information from all the nodes and creates a log about the sender, receiver and data to be sent, later while the cluster head starts navigating the entire data.
