Nowadays wireless sensor networks have gained much popularity due to their flexibility. This progress has enabled the use of sensor nodes on an unprecedented scale and opened new opportunities for the so-called ubiquitous computerization. The total freedom of nodes distribution within the wireless sensor network (WSN), where the wireless characteristic is one of the greatest advantages of WSN, implies its greatest weaknesses. To overcome this challenge specialized routing protocols, such as many different version of LEACH, were ushered in so as to make effective use of the energy of the nodes themselves. This article aims to show the functioning of a new author’s solution, called IIS-LEACH, which uses redundancy as a basic element in increasing the reliability of WSN networks.
