Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) perform the routing functions with many routing protocols like LEACH, HPSD and so on. Still there are many unresolved issues in routing protocol in wireless sensor networks. In this work, a new algorithm named Distance-based Energy-aware Routing (DER) protocol has been proposed. The proposed protocol that selects a route to the base station based on the mean measure mechanism and a node, which is nearest to the base station within the range. The mean measure is calculated by adding the energy level of all nodes in the range, which can be divided by number of nodes in the range.
