Authors: Ch. Nagalakshmi and S. Krishna Mohan Rao
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.
