Abstract

This paper aims to determine the optimal number of clusters in an observation area for a wireless sensor network. We demonstrate that this goal can be achieved by a cross-layer approach from both perspectives of the power efficiency in the medium access control (MAC) layer and the coverage performance in the physical (PHY) layer.
