Congestion is a significant issue for event-based applications due to the continuous data collection and transmission by the sensors constituting the network. The congestion control technique monitors the process of adjusting the data and intends to manage the network traffic level to the threshold value. The information gathered from an intensive study is required to strengthen the knowledge base for devising a QoS-based congestion evasion clustering framework of wireless sensor networks. In this scheme, the cluster heads are optimally determined and dispersed over the network. The data aggregation approach has been applied in a clustered network and set out a crucial paradigm for wsn routing. The proposal employs to mitigate congestion while messages are being forwarded via an alternate route to distribute the traffic and increase the throughput. This technique aims to balance the energy ingestion among the sensor nodes, reduce energy consumption, improve network lifetime, and achieve the quality of services. The result analysis revealed that the proposed scheme efficiently relieves congestion while preserving the network's performance for attaining QoS in wireless sensor networks.
