National Conference on Current Trends in Computer Science and Engineering - CSECONF2012 Energy Efficient Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks Gunti Spandan1, Prashanth.C2, C R Manjunath3 1,2 nd MTech 2 sem, Dept of CSE, SET, Jain University,, 3 Asst prof, Dept of CSE, Jain University, manjucr123@gmail.comAbstract:Wireless Sensor Networks present a great Energy-efficient multicast routing protocol is ofpotential in monitoring systems. Routing problem is one of paramount importance for many new applications beingthe most important issues in a wireless sensor network developed for the resource scarce WSN.(WSN).Any routing protocol designed for wireless sensor II - MULTICAST AD HOC ON-DEMANDnetworks is should take into consideration, the challenging DISTANCE V ECTOR(MAODV)factors like fault tolerance, energy efficiency, scalability, MAODV like DSR has the same on demandlatency, power consumption and network topology.The routing characteristics, but uses an entirely differentstringent requirement of energy budget has been an approach for maintaining routing table information. Asemerging issue in the design specification for a wireless MAODV belongs to the family of on demand routingsensors network (WSN). In this paper we present astudy on protocol,so it follows the conventional scheme ofdemand &clustermulticast routing protocols with energy- maintaining routing table i.e. only one entry will be madeefficiency perspective. for each destination.The entry made contains two informations, first one is it will update its destination withKeywords: multicast, routing, wireless sensor the next hope and then the next hope will update itsnetworks, energyefficient. sequence number which shows that how recently this nodeI - Introduction has updated. Wireless sensor network(WSN) is a multi-hop MAODV also updates the upstream link if anywireless networks consists of a large of small-size, low-cost link associated against this entry goes down.MAODV alsoand low-power sensor nodes which are capable of sensing, uses the same broadcasting mechanism as used by the DSRcomputation and communication. WSN take advantage of for discovery within the network but it is different fromdeployment rapidly and strong survivability without fixed AODV as it only receives route reply from those nodesnetwork support,but also with features of dynamic topology which belongs to a family of multicast group.structure and energy resources are limited and so on.Theapplication of WSN technology is a revolution of perceivedand collection of information andused for variousapplications such as habitat monitoring, automation, andagriculture [1]. Routing in WSNs is very challenging due to theinherent characteristics that distinguish these networksfrom other wireless networks like mobile ad hoc networksor cellular networks.Sensor nodes are tightly constrained interms of energy, processing, and storage capacitiestheyrequire careful resource management. Multicast is thecommunication paradigm of one-to-many or many-to-many, based on defined groups and constituted bymembers, whose interest is to receive/share the sameinformation for a specific application.Multicast routing is tofind a multicast tree which is rooted from the source and Figure 1 MAODV Joining Process- Image reproducedspans all destination nodes.The whole routing process The group leader broadcast a HELLO message to all theincludes two phases. The first phase is to seek a minimal nodes and they update their request table upon this groupenergy path from the sink to the access point based on the HELLO message. If a new node is interested to be a part ofidea of dynamic programming. The second phase is to join this group, initially it will generate a route requestsearch for a broadcast tree between the access point and the packet (RREQ). The node unicast this request if it alreadydestination nodes in the multicast region [2]. knows the group leader address otherwise it will be Energy Efficient Routingmethod is proposed for broadcasted.

Only one node from the pair will respond to theapplications. In TEEN, nodes have two levels of cluster query while the another node goes to sleep mode. The nodeheads and also they follow hierarchical clustering design. which responds to the query is considered as active nodeAfter nodes haveselected their cluster head, user needs to and the other node which goes to sleep mode is consideredmanually enter the attribute values, which will be as sleep node. This protocol supports one time query,broadcasted by cluster head in form of two parameters soft historical query and persistent query.

The soft modified TDMA schedule is assigned as per which BSthreshold also saves energy by reducing the transmission, needs to wait until data from CH of cluster with morewhen there no or little change in the attribute value. Cluster members reaches it. Apart from responding to time criticalhead will definitely consume more energy than a normal events, the nodes were also forced to transmit data to CH atnode because it needs to do extra processing. periodic intervals as CT even though the sensed data does not exceed the threshold value. Where CT is the maximum time period between two successive reports sent by a node. Due to this periodic transmission, frequent updates of the nodes sensed value are transmitted to its CH. In this protocol the energy consumption can be reduced by properly selecting the CT and threshold values. CDMA schedule is used to avoid collisions during cluster heads communicating with BS. The attributes can be changed during the every cluster head change time. The main drawback ofthis protocol is the additional complexity required to implement the threshold functions and CT. Figure 2 Operational Flow of TEENThe biggest disadvantage of this protocol is that when hardthreshold value is higher than sensed value there will be notransmission to clustered head from node, so the clusterhead will have no information updation even if the node isno more in network. This problem can easily be addressedby fixing soft threshold to as minimum value as possibleeven though it would increase energy consumption butnodes sensibility will also be increased. This protocol usesTime Division Multiple Access (TDMA) as a scheduler tosend data between nodes and their cluster heads.Figure 2shows operational flow diagram of TEEN protocol.IV - Adaptive Periodic Threshold-sensitiveEnergyEfficient sensor network protocol(APTEEN) APTEEN, is a hybrid protocol proposed in [5] for V - SPEED Protocolboth periodic data collection and time criticalevents.

C.

D. Neighborhood manager This manager attempts to find a new forwarding choice that meets the required velocity through power adaptation and neighbor discovery, when the forwarding policy cannot find a forwarding choice that meets the required velocity in the neighbor table. RPAR trades-off between thecommunication delay and throughput. It trades capacity Figure 4 SPEED Protocol- Image reproduced and energy for improving latency byincreasing transmission power and when there are loose deadlines, the transmission power isadjusted accordingly.
