Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is becoming a crucial component of most of the fields of engineering. WSN applications are constrained by the availability of power hence; conserving energy in a sensor network becomes a major challenge. Literature survey shows that node deployments can have good impact on energy conservation. Works show that self-adaptable nodes can significantly save energy as compared to other types of deployment. This work uses the concept of self-configuration of nodes to conserve energy in a WSN. A deployment strategy driven by some dynamic decision making capability can boost the overall performance of a WSN. The work presents an analysis of three types of deployments: like keeping all nodes fixed, all node moving and high energy nodes moving with respect to throughput, delay and energy consumption. Experimental results show that self-configured high energy node moving deployment gives 20% better throughput and 6% better energy conservation than other deployment strategies with respect to energy conservation and number of packets transmitted.
