Many energy-aware routing protocols take into account the residual battery power in sensor nodes or/and the energy required for transmission along the path. In the deployment of an environmental sensor network, authors observed that applications may also impose requirements on routing, thus placing higher demands on protocol design. Authors demonstrated the approach to this issue through FloodNet, a flood warning system, which uses a predictor model developed by environmental experts to make flood predictions based on readings of water level collected by a set of sensor nodes.
