A base station and multiple sensor nodes are two main components of the wireless sensor network. Main task of sensor nodes is to aggregate and forward the collected data to the base station. The main objective of wireless sensor network is to maximize the network lifetime and providing as low latency delay as possible. To seek to accomplish this, we are proposing a Vertical and Horizontal segregation based data dissemination protocol. This protocol considers mobile base station that helps in improving the network lifetime by collecting the data from each and every node by moving to provide high throughput. Mobile base station requires informing all the sensor nodes about its location. This consumes large energy. Our proposed protocol saves this energy by informing few sensor nodes, in place of informing all the sensor nodes.
