Abstract

Routing technologies in WSNs are used to route packets from a source node to a destination node. Routing technologies can be classified as pro-active or reactive routings or based on network structures or network protocol operations. After briefly introducing general routing protocols, the Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol and the cluster-tree routing methods are described in detail. These are commonly used by ZigBee networks,. The methods for making routing protocols energy aware are presented at the end of the chapter for stimulating further research in the topic.
