Secured and Optimized AODV for Wireless Sensor Networks

Similar to conventional wireless networks, WSNs are based on multi hop routing to ensure connectivity and data forwarding which makes the routing service a challenging task due to the nature of sensors usually limited in memory, battery and computing capacities as well as the nature of the environment which is hostile and unpredictable making the routing protocols developed for conventional wireless network useless for WSNs without modifications and adaptations for the new context of WSNs. Thus in this paper, the authors present an optimized version of AODV protocol for WSNs which takes into consideration the traffic pattern of WSNs and sensors' constraints.
