Wireless sensor networks are equipped to handle more complex functions. In a network processing may require these battery powered sensor to judiciously use their constrained energy to prolong the effective network life time especially in a heterogeneous settings. Nodes are organized into clusters and in each cluster all non-cluster nodes transmit their data only to the cluster-head. Because of energy limitation in sensor nodes are energy reduction in each data transmission; appropriate cluster-head election can significantly reduce energy consumption and enhance the life of the network. Clustered techniques have since been employed to optimize energy consumption in this energy constrained wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we consider LEACH protocol in which most nodes transmit to cluster heads and explore how to elect the cluster heads with mobility as its parameter. Efficient distributed algorithms for cluster-head election in terms of energy are provided. Mobility based communication can prolong the life time of WSNs and increases the connectivity of cluster head.
