Wireless sensors have a finite amount of energy and cannot be recharged after deployment. Therefore, the efficiency of the algorithm is an important consideration. An effective algorithm can reduce energy consumption and prolong network lifetime. In this paper, we proposed a cluster-based routing protocol. First, this algorithm divides networks into several units and those units would be regarded as clusters. Second, according to the remaining energy of the nodes, the nodes will execute
