One of the most significant challenges for Wireless Sensor Networks
(WSN) is long-lived sensor nodes and minimization in overall power
consumption, As the nodes spend substantial energy in sending and receiving
data, a robust and power-aware routing protocol can maximize the network
lifetime. In this paper, a cluster based dynamic and energy efficient routing
scheme with optimal transmission range (DEOR) for wireless sensor networks
is proposed in order to maximize the network lifetime. In this protocol, nodes
are classified in different ranks depending on the nature of their power
consumption in terms of both direct communication to the Base Station and
optimal transmission range. Each node maintains a routing table to choose the
next hop node to relay the data and after successful transmission it updates that
routing table. Computer simulation of this dynamic routing protocol has been
done and a better outcome has been observed compared to one of the multihop
routing strategies.
