One of the important research topics in the literature of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is the design of an efficient routing protocol. This latter is a continuous challenging task due to the networks' variable topology and limited resources. Many researchers have proposed various routing protocols for WSN using some principles taken from geometric field or modifying some classical protocols or inspiring algorithms from nature (bio-inspired system). In this paper, the authors have tried to make a comparison between geometric field and bio-inspired system through a case study of two algorithms: one, which has already existed, known as DIR or compass routing protocol and the other one, which is a new proposal, known as BeeRP (BeeRoutingProtocol) inspired from bees' communication.
