On Routing Protocols for WSNs with Additional Layers: Future Technology for IT

Free registration required

Executive Summary

WSNs are foreseen as one of the big opportunities in Information Technology. WSN technology is the measure for the future of Ubiquitous Computing. The motes preview a future pervaded by networks of wireless battery-powered sensors that monitor the environment, the machines, and even the people. In this paper, the authors simulate and comparatively analyze the tree-based routing protocols: the Mint, the Broker, the Backbone and the Adaptive Tree using PROWLER. Their simulation results indicate that among all the tree-based routing protocols the adaptive tree protocol with and without additional layers has a low energy consumption, less loss rate and high throughput for all the radio models.
