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