Sensor networks are plagued by the Problems of interference to wireless communication from environmental noise, node failure and energy-constrained nodes. However, they face mote failures, RF interference from environmental noise and energy constraints. Routing protocols are overcome these problems to achieve reliability, energy efficiency and scalability in message delivery. Achievement of these requirements, however, poses conflicting demands. In this paper, the authors propose an Efficient And Reliable routing protocol (EAR) that achieves reliable and salable performance with minimal compromise of energy efficiency.
