Abstract

Applications for wireless sensor networks have grown enormously over the past few years. Routing and sink discovery protocols designed for ad hoc networks do not adapt to sensor networks, and generic sensor network routing techniques are not optimal for all scenarios. We propose a light weight routing protocol to discover mobile sinks in battle-field operations or large terrains. Initial experimentation shows promising results in reduction of control over head, good data delivery with support of multi-metric path selection.
