Sensor networks are dense wireless networks where information is gathered by sensor elements spread out in an interest area. Wireless sensors applications cover large fields such as surveillance and security, target tracking, agriculture, health and military purposes. As wireless sensor network protocols are application specific. The three main categories explored are data-centric, hierarchical and location-based. Each of the routing schemes and algorithms has the common objective of trying to
