We propose a model to define the lifetime of a wireless sensor network (WSN) based on threshold energy and transmission time.
Today main objective of WSN is to minimize the energy dissipation for the whole network. The proposed model takes into consideration
several parameters such as threshold energy, total no. of sensors, map size, transmission time and location of sensors. Using this model, we
compared two types of algorithms COMPASS and Nearest with Forward Progress (NFP) and observed that Compass performs better than
