Performance Analysis of Various Routing Protocols in Wireless Sensor Network
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists ofnumerous sensors that are connected to form a network and these sensors shares the information gathered through the wireless links. The data from one sensor node is forwarded through multiple nodes to the destination. Wireless Sensor Network demands limited communication, computation and energy resources. IEEE 802.15.4 standard and ZIGBEEprovide low power consumption and also the low cost communication which is suitable for the wireless sensor networks.
... here are various routing protocols that are suitable for WSN and these protocols have to work efficiently considering power and resource limitations of sensor network. AODV, DYMO and LEACH are the 3 different routing protocols that have been discussed in this paper. We also compared these protocols on the basis of parameters like Average Throughput, Average Packet Delivery Ratio, Average End to End Delay and Average Energy Consumption. We have used NS2 Network Simulator for simulation of these protocols depending upon various scenarios.
