Abstract: The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) motivated by its unique characters such as it is capable of enduring callous ecological circumstances, and grant better scalability. The wireless sensor network is composed of insignificant sensors and a base station. The battery supplies the energy for the sensors. Hence, the lifetime of the network gets tainted while overworking for transmission. Since the WSN is being utilized for the dangerous purpose, we have to swell the lifespan of the network. The clustering is one of the foremost mechanisms to maximize the network's lifespan. The cluster head assortment plays an imperative role given the fact that clusters head was answerable for the transformation of data between cluster member and the base station. This present article deals with the novel scheme for the cluster head selection entitled as vitality aware cluster head election. In this scheme, the sensor nodes are being clustered into an optimal number. Subsequently, the cluster head is selected by a ballot for each and every group based on its remaining energy. To weigh up the performance of the proposed method, a Network Simulator (NS-2) has been employed.
