Wireless sensor network energy saving algorithm is a popular topic in recent researches. This paper proposes a new LEACH based energy saving algorithm to prolong the life of wireless sensor network. In this algorithm, sensors are divided into several static clustering. And each sensor takes turns to act as clustering head. Meanwhile, in order to reduce the network communication flow, the algorithm transports as little control signals as possible. Simulation results show that the algorithm
