Energy is the scarcest resource of sensor nodes and it determines the lifetime of wireless sensor networks. The main challenge is to minimize the energy required for wireless communication by developing application independent routing algorithm for reliable and efficient data delivery. In addition to the limited resources, security is a main concern of wireless sensor networks. In this paper the proposed scheme is to revolutionize the contemporary technical arena based on the hybrid routing. The hybrid routing is derived from fundamental radio energy model considering various parameters such as number of hops, threshold energy level, distance between number of hops and Packet Reception Rate (PRR) and also it protects the network against worm hole attacks.
