Design and Implementation of Minimum Hop Routing Algorithm with Reliability Assurance for WSN


Article Preview

Design of wireless sensor network routing protocol is still a problem that should be solved quickly. Although there are many achievements in this field, they all focus on single one property of WSN( Wireless Sensor Network) such as delay, hop count, energy consumption and so on. Dealing with the distinctive features of wireless channel, a routing strategy named MHRR( Minimum Hop Routing algorithm with Reliability assurance) based on AODV is proposed. Firstly, this paper provides a method which preserves multiple optimum routes by broadcasting and responding data frame; secondly, a routing filter mechanism is proposed to enhance the reliability of the network. At last, the optimum route can be chosen by specific factor in different situations. Experiments show that MHRR strategy is competent to deal with dynamic and bandwidth constrained WSN in reliability and delay.
