One of the major challenges in facing the design of disseminating protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is to find an energy efficiency way. Recently, several researches have been studied for this issue, and SPMS, that outperforms the well-known protocol SPIN, specially is a representative protocol. Also one of many characters of SPMS is the using of the shortest path to minimize the energy consumption. However, since it repeatedly uses the same path as the shortest path, the maximizing of the network lifetime is impossible, though it reduces the energy consumption. In this paper, we propose a novel data dissemination protocol, called Energy and Distance Aware protocol based on SPIN (EDAS), that guarantees energy-efficient data transmission and maximizes network lifetime. EDAS solves the network lifetime problem by using the residual energy and the efficient distance between nodes to determine a path for data dissemination. The simulation results show that EDAS guarantees energy-efficient transmission and moreover increases the network lifetime by approximately 69% than that of SPMS.
