A Delay-Oriented Energy-Efficient Routing Protocol for Wireless Sensor Network
Wireless sensor network (WSN) has become a prominent technology in order to access data from the remote or non-remote areas, e.g., forests, battlefields, hospitals, homes. As WSN has energy constraints, energy-efficient routing protocols are required to prolong the network lifetime. Delay is one of the important parameters for WSN because of it data losses its importance of data and creates congestion in the network also. In this paper, a delay-aware energy-efficient routing protocol is proposed. Delay is minimized with the help of mobile base station, and optimized numbers of hops improve the energy efficiency of proposed routing protocol. Simulation results show the improvement in performance over the existing routing protocol. Extensive simulation study is carried out to evaluate the performance of the proposed protocol with respect to delay, throughput, average residual energy, and network lifetime.
