The rapid growth in wireless technology is enabling a variety of advances in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). By providing the sensing capabilities and efficient wireless communication, WSNs are becoming important factor in day to day life. WSNs have many commercial, industrial and telecommunication applications. Maximizing network lifespan is a primary objective in wireless sensor networks as the sensor nodes are powered by a non-rechargeable battery. The main challenges in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are area of coverage, network's lifetime and aggregating. Balanced node establishment (clustering) is the foremost strategy for extending the entire network's lifetime by aggregating the sensed information at the head of the cluster. The recent research trend suggests Meta-heuristic algorithms for the intelligent selection of ideal Cluster Heads (CHs). The existing Cluster Head Selection (CHS) algorithm suffers from the inconsistent trade-offs between exploration-exploitation and global best examine constraints. In this research, a novel Camel series Elephant Herding Optimization (CSEHO) algorithm is proposed to enhance the random occurrences of Camel algorithm by the Elephant Herding Optimization algorithm for optimal CHS. The Camel algorithm imitates the itinerant actions of a camel in the desert for the scavenging procedure. The visibility monitoring condition of the camel algorithm improves the efficiency of exploitation, whereas the exploration inefficiency of a Camel algorithm is compensated optimally by the Elephant Herding Optimization operator (Clan and separator). The superior performance of the proposed CSEHO algorithm is validated by comparing its performance with various other existing CHS algorithms. The overall attainment of the offered CSEHO algorithm is 21.01%, 31.21%, 44.08%, 67.51%, and 85.66%, better than that of EHO, CA, PSO, LEACH, and DT, respectively. © 2020 Science and Information Organization.
