    1) Linked Cluster Algorithm (LCA) [5], [6], [7]: LCA, was one of the initial clustering algorithms evolved. It was primarily developed for wired sensors, but later applied in wireless sensor networks. In LCA, a unique ID number is allotted to each node and has two means of becoming a cluster head. The first way is that if the node has the greatest ID number in the set including all neighbor nodes and the node itself. The second way is to assume that none of its neighbors are cluster heads, then it becomes a cluster head. In this way, LCA search a solution which is surely not an optimal solution. 2) Linked Cluster Algorithm (LCA) [5], [6], [7]: LCA2 was anticipated to reduce the selection of an unnecessary number of cluster heads, as in LCA. In LCA2, the concept of a node being covered and non-covered was introduced. A node is considered as covered if one of its neighbors is a cluster head. Cluster heads are primarily selected from nodes which are having lowest ID among non-covered neighbors. Again the probability of achieving success is less. 3) Highest-Connectivity Cluster Algorithm [7]: This algorithm is analogous to LCA. In…

    2.5 Proposed Architectures for SDN in WSN The novel idea of exploiting OpenFlow technology to address reliability issues in sensor networks was presented by (Arif Mahmud and Rahim Rahmani, 2011) at the IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Network Technology while the first architectural proposal was presented by (Luo et al., 2012) in the form of Software Defined Wireless Sensor Network (SD-WSN). Up until now, very limited research work is carried out in this area. Some of the…

    IoT or internet of things can be considered as the new backbone of the society, which is related to information. IoT is a well-known term which is related to the interconnectivity between the two or more devices (the devices are physical devices such as buildings, smart devices, actuators, sensors, and software). It can be basically anything and everything which can be digitally connected with each other so that they can start the process of sharing data with each other. The process of sharing…

    The communication protocols used in connecting sensors form a network for collecting sensory information called BSN. Patients who are going about their day to day activity can receive quality health monitoring in real time by us of BSN. The BSN nodes are attached to these patients. On a predetermined period, the BSN collect health information such as pulse, blood sugar level and temperature and transmit it to a remote medical aid. This way, the medical personnel are able to keep up to date with…

    1.1.1 Types of Sensor Networks Terrestrial WSNs: - In Terrestrial WSNs, nodes are distributed in a given area either in a pre-planned manner (sensor nodes are placed according to optimal placement, grid placement, 2-d and 3-d placement models) or in an ad hoc manner (sensor nodes are randomly placed in the target area by dropping it from plane). After all battery power is limited and it cannot be reenergized, terrestrial sensor nodes must be provided with a maximum power source such as solar…
