Scope of sensor networks is increasing every year, finding practical application in many areas of our lives. There are a lot of algorithms for organizing stationary sensor networks where nodes location does not change. Nowadays network nodes mobility is one of the basic properties for wireless sensor network. In this regard, there are some new problems, such as connecting nodes and optimizing their energy consumption, network coverage and others, which require a new approach to organizing sensor network algorithms. The appearance of flying sensor networks actualizes this task even more. This paper discusses problems associated with mobile wireless sensor networks implementation, proposes a new clustering algorithm for three-dimensional space, simulation and comparison with the LEACH-M algorithm.
