Mobile Base Station and Clustering to Maximize Network Lifetime in Wireless Sensor Networks

Figure 8

(a) Network lifetime as it varies with node degree, for static and mobile BSs with different . The maximum network lifetime is calculated from (7), which assumes all clusters have the same number of nodes. (b) The minimum and maximum energy consumption differences among the cluster heads as the node degree is varied.
