Resource limitation such as power, reliability, storage capacity and computation in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) which throw a challenge in the recent advancement in sensor network research. In WSN, Sensor Nodes (SN)s are generally operated by battery and hence it is hard to change or recharge the battery in unattended environments. These may be overcome by the design of proper routing strategies. This research presents a brief survey of routing protocols in WSN based on the parametric analysis.
