As the demand for wireless sensor networks increases in both military and civilian sector, the need for a stable networking scheme has increased. Wireless sensor network, or WSN, must be robust networks capable of handling many adverse conditions. If these adverse conditions cannot be handled effectively they can result in data loss and under extreme conditions total network failure. Through the use of a hybrid network topology, WSN can be stable and reliable throughout the life of the node.
