In this paper, we introduced IS-MAC protocol based flooding protocol (ISF) for wireless sensor networks. Existing flooding protocols are based on IEEE 802.11 MAC layer that gives ideal listing problem for the sensor networks. Ideal listening is the most prominent cause for energy waste in sensor networks. We proposed ISF routing protocol that gives energy efficient data delivery mechanism for wireless sensor networks. Special features of IS-MAC protocol makes the ISF protocol most promising

The proposed protocol can lead the flooded packets to flow towards their destination, hence eliminating unnecessary packets in forwarding and reducing the total energy consumption. Our simulation results show the reduced energy consumption of ISF protocol over existing flooding protocols.
