Abstract

During recent years, research in wireless sensor networks has become more and more active. Routing algorithms is one of the major issues to be resolved in wireless sensor network research. In this paper we examine different types of flat and hierarchical routing protocols existing in literature. We discuss the operation of wireless sensor network routing protocols and highlight the advantages and drawbacks of each protocol. Appropriate metrics are used to compare the each protocol and conclude the scope for further research.

Keywords
