The battery power limits the energy consumption of wireless sensor networks (WSN). As a result, its network performance suffered significantly. Therefore, this paper proposes an opportunistic energy-efficient routing protocol (OEERP) algorithm for reducing network energy consumption. It provides accurate target location detection, energy efficiency, and network lifespan extension. It is intended to schedule idle nodes into a sleep state, thereby optimising network energy consumption. Sleep is

The sleep nodes are triggered to wake up after a certain time interval. The simulation results show that the proposed OEERP algorithm outperforms existing state-of-the-art algorithms in terms of accuracy, energy efficiency, and network lifetime extension.
