- As a typical hierarchical routing algorithm in wireless sensor network, LEACH protocol can reduce the routing overhead greatly. And it makes the network load balance relatively and have a good scalability. But there are still many deficiencies, such as the uneven clustering, unreasonable cluster head-selection, the single hop communication inter clusters and unsuitable for the large-scale network. Therefore, this paper proposes a new energy balancing routing algorithm, which determines the optimal number of cluster head based on the energy consumption of the network and selects the optimal cluster head based on network load balancing. The simulation results show that the algorithm can balance network load, prolong the network lifetime effectively.
