Wireless communication technologies continue to undergo rapid advancement. In recent years, there has been a steep growth in research in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Sensor nodes are small devices with sensing, computing and wireless communication capabilities. Such devices form WSNs which can be used for many applications like gathering of environmental data and even monitoring enemy activity on a battlefield. In order to achieve this efficient routing protocol must be used. Such routing protocols are of prime research interest. There exist many different approaches most of which are studied through simulation only.
