Wireless applications are emerging in today’s world especially for monitoring purposes. The key issue in handling this type of communication is the battery lifetime. Clustering is implemented where grouping of wireless nodes are done to extend the network lifespan by reducing number of long distance communications. However, this clustering technique are seldom implemented on mobile nodes. This limits the wireless application, making clusters unrealistic to be implemented on wireless mobile application. This paper aims to study the behaviour and performance of clustering technique applied on mobile wireless sensor nodes. LEACH clustering algorithm will be implemented on random mobility network. The simulation is done by MATLAB software. Nodes with higher mobile weightage are proven to work better at its initial lifecycle but degrade faster with time. When compared with static nodes, the performance of mobile nodes is better at an early stage, but worsen with time.
