In wireless sensor network cluster architecture is useful because of its inherent suitability for data fusion. In this paper we represent a new approach called Multiple Parameter based Clustering (MPC) embedded with the traditional k-means algorithm which takes different parameters (Node energy level, Euclidian distance from the base station, RSSI, Latency of data to reach base station) into consideration to form clusters. Then the effectiveness of the clusters are evaluated based on the uniformity of the node distribution, Node range per cluster, Intra and Inter cluster distance and required energy level of each centroid. Our result shows that by varying multiple parameters we can create clusters with more uniformly distributed nodes, minimize intra and maximize inter cluster distance and elect less power consuming centroid.
