A new approach for energy efficient sensor networks that maximizes the life of the sensor networks which maintaining desired quality of service attributes related to sensed data delivery is presented. The IEEE 802.15.4 as a standard for Low Rate Wireless Personal Area Network (LR-WPAN) is an applicative choice for wireless sensor networks. Due to the advantages of this standard and its capabilities for more specification to wireless sensor networks, the authors were persuaded to resolve some of its proven weaknesses in such environments.
