This paper discusses the construction of a data aggregation routing method in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). It is important to design a routing protocol that efficiently collects data and extends network lifetime in WSNs. We use the concept of a local sink to solve routing problems according to the geographic division. The network environment is divided into several regions. We use the center method to find the local sink that collects data in that region and explore the best situation in various situations. The experiment results show that the proposed scheme can collect data efficiently and the lifetime of the sensor networks can be prolonged.
