In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), the benefits of exploiting the sink mobility to prolong network lifetime have been well recognized. In physical environments, all kinds of obstacles could exist in the sensing field. Therefore, a research challenge is the determination of efficient dispatch of the mobile sink to find an obstacleavoiding shortest route. This research article presents an energy-efficient routing mechanism based on the clusterbased method for the mobile sink in WSNs with obstacles. According to the cluster-based method, the nodes selected as cluster heads collect data from their cluster members and transfer the data collected to the mobile sink. In this work, the mobile sink starts the data-gathering route periodically from the starting site, then directly collects data from these cluster heads in a single-hop range and finally returns to the starting site. However, due to the complexity of the scheduling problem in WSNs with obstacles, the conventional algorithms are difficult to resolve. Simulation results verify the effectiveness of the method.
