A wireless sensor network (WSN) is nothing but the network with sensor devices that can sense environmental conditions about the ambient environment. And Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have wide range of applications. One of the most important applications is Sensor data collection. The sensor network collects the environment data from all sensor nodes periodically. In this paper a mobile data collection concept is used. The mobile data collector is used to efficiently collecting sensor data with optimized tour. There by reducing the network imbalance and improving network lifetime. Our proposed schedule improves the energy efficiency of sensor data collection. In this method a single hop data gathering algorithm is used.
