Performance Evaluation of OLSR and DSR Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has been regarded as a distinguished ad hoc network that can be used to fulfill multiple tasks and applications. Since a WSN consists hundreds of small size, low cost and battery powered sensor nodes. These nodes have the event sensing capabilities, data processing capabilities. Number of routing protocols has been implemented to perform routing in these networks. In this paper, an attempt have been made to evaluate the performance of OLSR and DSR routing protocol using random waypoint model, and also investigate how well these selected protocols performs on WSNs, in mobile and static environments, using OPNET 14.5 Simulation tool.
