Wireless sensor networks represent a new data collection paradigm in which expandability plays an important role. In a practical monitoring environment, for example, food factory monitoring system, sensor relocations and reorganizations are necessary with reorganization of production lines and starting of new production lines. These relocations sometime make congestion in some area of the network. In this dynamic changing environment online expansion is a challenging problem for constraint network. This paper proposes a two-tier autonomous community architecture for wireless sensor network to solve the problem. The first layer consists of sensors and second layer consists of routers. In the architecture routers make community (a group of nodes mutually cooperate for a common goal is a community). The goal of paper is to introduce the concept of sharing information among routers the community to decrease sensor connection time for the network especially for the dynamic changing environment. Results show that our technologies can reduce sensor connection time to achieve online expansion.
