WSNs encompass sensors, which are randomly dispersed in huge regions, collecting essential information from their surroundings. Sensor nodes have limited quantity of batteries. It is not likely to bring out standby sensors or renewing of sensors that are located in distant or challenging surroundings. Clustering of the nodes is the most commonly used approach to improve the lifespan of WSN. This paper proposes a virtual gridding based clustering approach, which takes, into account modified round robin schedule of the cluster heads for the cluster head rotation phase. The parameters used to analyze the performance of the network were remaining energy, throughput, packet delivery ratio and routing overhead. They have shown improvement over the existing scheme.
