Wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of hundreds of sensor nodes organized in a particular order and deployed in geographical area to achieve presumed goal. Though WSNs have restrictions in terms of memory and processors, the main restraint that makes WSNs dissimilar from conventional networks is the battery trouble which limits the network lifetime. Transmission of data requires more energy as compared to sensing data. Distance between source and destination plays an important role in energy utilization. Sensor networks using the concept of mobile sinks is an optimum approach for maximizing the lifetime of WSN. Sink node aggregates the data from the common sensor nodes to conserve the battery of the different nodes. The data collected by sink node is then forwarded to the base station node.
