A Comparative Analysis of Different Routing Protocols in WSN

Shikha Chaudhry


Wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of small sized sensor nodes that collects the data and sends to base terminal.   The important issue in the field of WSN is the power supply by the batteries and routing protocol planning and engineering. The basic aim of these protocols is to reduce the energy consumption. In the present paper different routing protocols like Geographic and Energy Aware Routing (GEAR), Hybrid Energy Efficient Distributed (HEED), Energy Aware Data Centric (EAD) Routing, Geographic Random Forwarding (GeRaF), Scalable Energy-efficient Asynchronous Dissemination (SEAD), N-to-1 Multipath discovery, Sequential Assignment Routing (SAR), Information Driven Sensor Query (IDSQ) protocols employed for WSN are discussed and provide comparative analysis of these routing protocols with various performance parameters.

Keywords: Base station, cluster, routing protocols, sensor node, wireless sensor network
