In this paper, a new distributed Cluster-based Mo-bile Data-Gathering scheme (CMDG) for large-scale UnderwaterSensor Networks (UWSNs) is proposed to improve the systemperformance in terms of routing scalability, energy saving, anddata gathering latency. In this scheme, a subset of underwatersensors is selected as cluster heads to collect data from affiliatedsensors and transmit the data to an Autonomous UnderwaterVehicle (AUV). Then, the AUV tour is planned such that allcluster heads are visited while shortening the tour length ofthe AUV. Using extensive simulation study, we analyse theperformance of CMDG and show that it can effectively reducethe tour length while prolonging the network lifetime comparedto another existing mobile data-gathering approach.
