WSN comprises of sensor nodes distributed spatially to accumulate and transmit measurements from environment through radio communication. It utilizes energy for all its functionality (sensing, processing, and transmission) but energy utilization in case of transmission is more. Data compression can work effectively for reducing the amount of data to be transmitted to the sink in WSN. The proposed compression algorithm i.e. Energy Efficient Deflate (EEDeflate) along with fuzzy logic works effectively to prolong the life of Wireless Sensor Network. EEDeflate algorithm saves 7% to 10% of energy in comparison with the data transmitted without compression. It also achieves better compression ratio of average 22% more than Huffman and 8% more than Deflate compression algorithm. This improvements in terms of compression efficiency allows saving energy and therefore extends the life of the sensor network.
