Routing protocols play an important role in wireless sensor networks. There are primarily two types of protocols viz., data collection and data dissemination protocols. This paper compares two collection protocols: Base Station (BS) driven routing protocol and a modified version of Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) protocol. The simulation results show that utilizing BS driven routing protocol, less time is spent compared to LEACH protocol. Wireless sensor networks are comprised of a large number of small sensor devices which are commonly known as motes.
