Region Specific Election Routing Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks


Wireless Sensor Networks in real time applications are vastly increasing due to their sensing feature. In this paper we ­propose an efficient routing protocol for heterogeneous wireless sensor network. Two scenarios are considered: 20 ­advanced nodes & 80 normal nodes are used in simulation. In scenario one, Nodes transmitted data directly to the base station. In scenario two, Nodes transmitted their data to base station with assigned cluster node. After assigned rounds are completed, number of alive nodes is considered for analyzing energy efficiency, throughput, stability and network life time. Currently, two efficient routing protocols like Leech, Sep are induced to the simulations and compared with the proposed RSE routing protocol. Results proved that throughput, stability, network life time, energy efficiency are increased in our proposed model.
