Abstract:


Recently wireless sensor networks (WSN) get great attention in both research and industrial fields. The fast development in WSNs raises many new issues in the field. One of the interesting and of great needs issues is extending the scale of WSN, in order to have large-scale WSNs. In this paper, we propose an enhancement to Pairs Energy Efficient Routing Protocol (PEER) [1] for wireless sensor networks, to fit large-scale WSN. We showed the detailed enhanced algorithms and compared the new proposed protocol with the LEACH protocol (a well-known hierarchical routing protocol for WSNs). The results clearly show that the new protocol outcomes LEACH specially for large-scale deployment of wireless sensors motes.
