In this paper, we propose routing protocol for mobile wireless sensor networks with a mobile sink in cluster configuration. The proposed protocol extends LEACH-ME by introducing a mobile sink. The mobile sink moves to the cluster head with the highest number of member nodes to collect sensed data from cluster heads within its vicinity, which results in reducing energy consumption in forwarding packets to the sink. The simulation results show that the proposed protocol outperform LEACH-ME in terms of energy efficiency.
