Comparative Analysis of Energy Efficient Protocols for Prolonged Life of Wireless Sensor Network

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 259)


The efficiency of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) depends on the routing protocols used, since routing protocol provide the best possible data transmission route from sensor nodes to sink to save energy of nodes in the network. The clustering schemes enhance the network lifetime, raise the scalability and reduce the energy consumption of the sensor network. The work in this paper presents the comparative analysis of the energy efficient routing protocols for WSN such as SEP, TSEP and DSEP. The optimized routing protocol has been proposed on the basis of the network life time, stability and cluster head selection for efficient working of the sensor networks.
