Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) usually contains thousands or hundreds of sensors which are randomly deployed. Sensors are powered by battery, which is an important issue in sensor networks, since routing consumes a lot of energy. Such nodes are deployed in thousands to form a network with capacity to report to a data collection sink (base station). An efficient routing scheme in sensor network is also important. Networking unattended sensor nodes are expected to have significant impact on the efficiency of many military and civil applications such as combat field surveillance, security and disaster management.
