Keywords: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) | Cluster Head (CH) | Base Station (BS) | Network life time.

Communication is the major cause of energy depletion in the wireless sensor network, so designing of energy efficient routing algorithm is one of the key challenges that need to be addressed for extending life time of network. This paper studies the LEACH and puts forward some improvements to it. The suggested changes are for Cluster Head (CH) selection. The CHs are selected based on the parameters such as 1) Remaining Energy 2) Centrality of the node and 3) Proximity to Base Station. To check our presented scheme we simulate it using Mat lab. Simulation results show that Advanced-LEACH had outperformed LEACH on the basis of Network life time.
