Energy-Aware Tree Routing Protocol With Neighbor Self-Adjustment for Wireless Sensor Networks

Tree Routing (TR) is a simplified routing protocol proposed for wireless senor networks. It uses only the parent-child links for packet forwarding which not only increases the hop-counts but also makes an uneven energy consumption of the network. Enhanced Tree Routing (ETR) is one variant of TR proposed recently, in addition to the parent-child links, it uses links to other one-hop neighbors when it is decided that this will lead to a shorter path in terms of hop-counts than that of TR, and the chosen neighbors have to work constantly until their death for excessive energy consumption.
