Abstract: A sensor node is a significant part of a wireless sensor network. Sensor nodes have various roles in a network which includes identifying data storage, data processing and routing method. This paper's contribution is a mobility-based reactive protocol named 'mobility of sink-based data collection protocol (MSDCP)'. These protocol sensors, with great energy and maximum quantity information, are picked as cluster heads that gather data from the common nodes between the clusters. The data is placed unless mobile sink comes within the transmission area of the cluster heads and request for the gathered data. Once the request is received from the cluster head it forwards the data to the mobile sink.

Keywords: sensor; protocol; cluster; energy; transmission; sink; routing; mobility; data storage; cluster head.
