Cluster Head Election in M2M Communications

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This thesis is based on machine to machine type communications to self form the cluster group and network The idea was inspired by the growing popularity of smart phone smart appliance smart home and smart grid Because of the growing up number of machines will be huge the huge number of data transfer will bring the serious collision in the machine type communications network So we need an new mechanism to deal with the serious collision There is a challenge in machine to machine communications which is the cluster formation of machine type communications device How to group the cluster by it self is a challenge Because we can expect the collision in the network will be serious so we propose a group-based algorithm to solve this issue First coordinator will maintain the mesh network’s topology and the coordinator will select the cluster head to form the cluster The cluster will be in charge of the data transfer between the cluster and gateway All of the member of cluster will send packets to the cluster head then the cluster head collects packets and send them to the gateway This thesis propose the group-based algorithm of mesh network with different protocol to apply in M2M communications
