Energy Aware Routing for Enhancing Network Lifetime in Wireless Sensor Networks: A Survey

Darshan N.

Abstract


In the modern era of communication, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are one of the very important areas of research. WSNs find applications in many areas including military, healthcare, habitat monitoring and many more. A few applications of WSNs require the deployment of sensors in hostile environment. As recharging and replacing of batteries is not possible in such environments the communication has to be energy efficient. Routing is one of the major issues in the design of a WSN. For energy critical applications of WSNs routing protocol proposed has to be energy efficient. This paper presents a survey on various energy efficient routing protocols proposed in the literature.

Keywords: Energy- Efficient technique to Handle Redundant Traffic, Heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Network, Distributed Energy-Efficient Clustering
