Energy Efficient Multipath Routing Protocol for WMSN’s

A. V. Sutagundar, S. S. Manvi, and Kirankumar. B. Balavalad

Abstract—Routing in wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN’s) is a demanding task. This demand has led to a number of routing protocols which efficiently utilize the limited resources available at the sensor nodes. To increase the efficiency this paper proposes a protocol referred to be an Energy Efficient Multi-path Routing Protocol for WMSN’s. It takes a view that, always using the minimum energy path deprives the nodes energy quickly and the time taken to determine an alternate path increases. It uses multiple paths between source and the sink which is intended to provide a reliable transmission environment with low energy consumption, by efficiently utilizing the energy availability of the nodes to identify multiple routes to the destination. The scheme is simulated for testing its operation effectiveness in terms of path setup time, data transmission time, node energy consumption time, and life time of sensor network.
