There are much different energy aware routing protocols proposed in the literature, most of them focus only on energy efficiency by finding the optimal path to minimize energy consumption. These protocols should not only aim for energy efficiency but also for energy balance consumption. In this paper, energy balanced data gathering routing algorithm is developed using the concepts of potential in classical physics. Their authors' scheme called energy balanced routing protocol, forwards data packets toward the sink through dense energy areas so as to protect the nodes with relatively low residual energy.
