Evaluation of Different Performance Metrics of Wireless Sensor Networks in Different Topologies Using DSR Routing Protocol in NS-2 Simulator
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of small nodes with sensing, computation, and wireless communications capabilities. Many routing, power management, and data dissemination protocols have been specifically designed for WSNs where energy awareness is an essential design issue. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is intended for monitoring an environment. The main task of a wireless sensor node is to sense and collect data from a definite domain, process them and convey it to the sink where the application lies. DSR has been implemented by numerous groups, and deployed on several test beds. Networks using the DSR protocol have been connected to the Internet.
