Abstract: The paper invites the philosophy of time division multiplexing to the theory of data transfer in a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). It endeavors to realize a Single Input and Single Output (SISO) framework on the boundaries of minimum use of energy with a view to increase the network life time. The mechanism assuages the formation of a clustered environment to articulate the realms of an Ad-hoc On demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing mechanism in an effort to eschew an energy efficient path for the delivery of information. The role of a Cluster Head (CH) aids in the process of creating a single path at a given time and engraves a perspective to address the demands of the increasing traffic. It augurs to reduce the consumption of energy required to carry the message from the source to the destination in the periphery of the chosen architecture. The simulation results in the Network Simulator (NS2) platform measured in terms of the performance indices exhibit the merits of the Cluster Based Ad-hoc On demand Distance Vector (CAODV) scheme over similar approaches and erudite a new road map in the context of data communication for WSN.
