The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is one of most active research area over last decades. Due to the limited battery power and computation capacity of sensor nodes, it needs an effective routing protocol for WSN to increase the network lifetime. Basically, sensor nodes can be collected the application data and transmitted to the neighbor’s node effectively. The Location Based Energy Aware Routing Protocol(LBER)is proposed in this paper. In LBER, a node selecttheir neighbor node (Neighbor Discovery) using a beacon message and properly maintain the path for data transmission even a node failure. Furthermore, LBER consume a small amount of energy during node discovery, network activities and data transmission. In case of node failure, LBER protocol easy to handle the node breakdown problem. In the proposed work, LBER is compared with GPSR and LSR protocol, simulation results shows that LBER outperforms GPSR and LSR, which reduce the energy consumption, increase network lifetime and provide QOS of wsn.
