Power management is necessary in wireless sensor network because the nodes are very small in size having a small battery and that too of limited life. The routing algorithms for WSN should satisfy the features of energy consumption optimization and extension of network lifetime. The authors choose to modify AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector) routing protocol, analyze this algorithm named as modified AODV-TP (Threshold Power) and is highlighted in detail. The paper is that only those nodes are chosen as neighbors of nodes during RREQ (Route REQuest) phase that are directed towards destination.
