Clustering of the nodes is one of the most prevalent approaches for increasing the lifetime of wireless sensor networks by properly managing their energy consumption. In this paper a new algorithm named DNRC is proposed for the sensor nodes clustering. This method is based on neighborhood clusters formation and ranking the nodes within a cluster to select cluster heads. The performance of the proposed algorithm is checked and compared to other methods based on three conventional metrics and one new proposed metric of this paper.
