Abstract: Due to the failure or cut of a node, the performance of the network is affected. So cut node detection and recovery are presented in this paper. Initially, sensor nodes in the search area are clustered using the node weight of the sensor nodes. The node with maximum weight is selected as a cluster head (CH) and this CH performs as a monitor node which monitors all non-CH members in a cluster. Backup nodes (BNs) are selected in each cluster using particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm. A cut node in the network is detected based on its hop-count and link cost value. This cut node is recovered by the selected backup nodes and mobile nodes (MNs) in the network. Simulation results show that the performance of the proposed approach outperforms that of the existing approach in terms of overhead, energy efficiency, network lifetime and BN selection time.
