In modern industrial automation scenario, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) becomes a very popular technology. It is highly demanding in industrial applications such as the monitor or control of temperature, humidity and pressure. A reliable transmission of packet data information, with low latency and high energy-efficiency, is truly essential for wireless sensor networks, employed in delay sensitive industrial control applications. The proper selection of the routing protocol to achieve maximum efficiency is a challenging task, since latency, reliability and energy consumption are inter-related with each other.
