ZigBee technology is a wireless sensor network technology in the Internet of things; it has the characteristic of low-cost, low data rate and low power consumption. Routing protocol is the core technology of the ZigBee network. In view of the routing algorithm can’t obtain the optimal path on the path selection, this paper focuses on the research into such an issue and analyses the tree and AODVjr routing algorithm. Based on the above analysis, an improve tree-based routing algorithm (ImcTR) is proposed which was used to optimize the path selection, reduces the network average hop count and energy consumption, shortening the average network transmission delay.
