The distinctive characteristics of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) such as for instance coherent nature of traffic to base station that happens through its many-to-one topology and collision in physical channel are main factors behind congestion in wireless sensor networks. Also when sensor nodes inject sensory data into network the congestion is possible. Congestion affects the continuous flow of data, loss of information, delay in the arrival of data to the destination and undesirable usage of large amount of energy in the nodes.
