Outlook of wireless communication system marked an extreme transform with the invention of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). WSN is a promising technology for enabling a variety of applications like environmental monitoring, security and applications that save the people lives and assets. In WSN, large numbers of sensor nodes are deployed to sensing and gathering information and forward them to the base station with the help of routing protocol. Routing protocols plays a major role by identifying and maintaining the routes in the network. Competence of sensor networks relay on the strong and effective routing protocol used. In this paper, the authors present a simulation based performance evaluation of different Ad hoc routing protocols like AODV, DYMO, FSR, LANMAR, RIP and ZRP in Wireless Sensor Networks.
