A wireless sensor networks consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors nodes called motes. Clustering is an effective way for prolonging the lifetime of a wireless sensor network. Current clustering algorithms consumes much time in setup phase and they hardly consider the hot spot problem in wireless sensor network. The cluster heads are cooperatively carry data to forward to base station. The ability to perform task totally depends on the available residual energy at the node. We propose an efficient clustering algorithm with position based multihop approach to partition the network region into levels with increasing number of cluster heads at each level. The cluster head closer to base station have smaller in size because it forwards the data to base station using Round Robin Technique to make the network more efficient. The proposed protocol improves the performance in delay and energy consumption. The proposed approach is more scalable than the existing solution.
