Comparison of Data Centric Routing Protocols with Random Way Point Mobility Model in Mobile Sensor Networks
Adhoc networks classify the sensor networks as one of the infrastructure less networks. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are a self configurable, healing network which finds variety of emerging applications in today's world such as military, movement tracking, industries and medical fields. In Mobile Sensor Network (MSN) nodes move their position dynamically without any infrastructure and to operate under unattended mode. Therefore it is required an efficient protocol to establish a connection between the mobile nodes. Directed Diffusion and flooding are the data centric routing protocols in WSN. The diffusion routing protocols are application specific and their performance may vary across mobility model and node speed. So, it is significant in bringing out a comparison of the various routing protocols for better understanding of the performance.
