currently the world is adopting Internet of Things (IoT) as the future technology and the interest IoT development is increasing. As it’s expected to be the leading technology by 2022 according to Gartner. WSN is the main technology component of the IoT since it rely on sensing and collecting data in a specific filed of interest. As the WSN main issue is the network life time due the limitation in sensors resource. Therefore, such life time constrained devices require enchantment on the existing routing protocols to prolong network life time as long as possible. In our paper we propose enhancement in the well know WSN routing protocol LEACH by proposing a new Energy aware algorithm in communication within cluster, hence reduce power consumption in communication process .
