Routing Protocols and Energy efficient protocols for Data Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Network: A Survey

By Meenakshi Dhull Soni Chaurasia


Abstract: A sensor in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) periodically produces data as it monitors its vicinity. The basic operation in such a network is the systematic gathering (with or without in-network aggregation) and transmitting of sensed data to a base station for further processing. A key challenging question in WSNs is to choose best routing protocol to gather data from various sensing devices and send it to the base station (sink). Routing protocols used in various networks (homogeneous, heterogeneous and hybrid) are the same. Routing protocol which consumes less energy and produces minimum traffic is used in that particular network. This paper give a survey of different routing protocol and a way to save energy used for data aggregation in sensor network.. The propose protocol is based on a network which uses HYBRID sensors and it will depend upon the RANGE of sensors to detect the vicinity. The protocol focused on minimizing traffic in the sensor node and energy consumption by sensors. The information will be transmitted as trans-receiver. There are using a two different radio, low power radio is use for detect to the event and high power radio is used for data transmission
