Energy Efficient and Fault Tolerant Routing Protocol for Mobile Sensor Network

Designing energy efficient and reliable routing protocols for mobility centric Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) applications such as wildlife monitoring, battlefield surveillance and health monitoring is a great challenge due to the frequent change of the network topology. Existing cluster-based routing protocols such for LEACH-Mobile, LEACH-Mobile-Enhanced, and CBR-Mobile that are designed for mobile sensor network consider only the energy efficiency of sensor nodes. Moreover, these protocols allocate extra timeslots using TDMA scheme to accommodate nodes that enter a cluster due to mobility and thus, increase the end-to-end data transmission delay.
