Multi-path is favorite alternative for sensor networks, as it provides an easy mechanism to distribute traffic and balance network's load, as well as considerate fault tolerance. For this purpose, a new clustering based multi path routing protocol namely CMQ is proposed in this paper, which guarantees achieve to required QoS of wireless sensor networks. Proposed protocol has better performance than the EQSR in terms of energy-efficiency, end-to-end delay and delivery ratio. In WSNs, wireless devices are usually called nodes, which spontaneously form a network without the need of any infrastructure so that a multi-hop wireless network is constructed.
