In this paper, we propose a congestion-aware energy-saving routing protocol (CER) network. Specifically, a source node degree get obstruction of the surplus energy and neighbor node determine destination for packet. Wrapped in a jump of routing with a minimum cost, light routing traffic, and high energy level, such congestion could be reduced and the network life increased. The experimental results show that there is a significant improvement in energy saving, network, and other energy output as-aware routing protocol.
