Traditional reliable transport protocols use end-toend retransmission for the recovery of lost packets, which has high cost in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Hence, reliable transport protocols in WSNs use caching packets at the intermediate nodes in order to avoid costly end-to-end retransmission for loss recovery. Hop-by-hop retransmission scheme is one of the most important caching policies. This scheme requires large cache memory space which is in paradox with memory constraint in sensor

The proposed scheme tries to select cache points using a model based on probability theory so that it prevents packets end-toend retransmission. Evaluation results show the efficiency of the proposed scheme regarding the required cache memory space.
