Wireless sensor networks are a set of small, low cost, low power sensing devices with wireless communication capabilities. A wireless sensor networks is totally based on the limiting factor i.e. energy consumption. A wireless sensor network consists of large number of sensor nodes distributed or scattered in particular network region. MANETs consist of node that is highly mobile, so in particular the in range of the nodes is very important. Each device in a MANETs is free to move independently in any direction, and will therefore change its links to other devices frequently. Each must forward traffic unrelated to its own use, and therefore be a router.
