Comparative Study of AODV and DSR Protocols in Wireless Sensor Network

Authors(1) :-Kaushal Bahuguna

Wireless Sensor Network has provided the availability of small, tiny and low cost sensor nodes which are capable to sense various kinds of physical and environmental conditions, data gathering, data processing and wireless communication. The sensing capability of these sensors results sufficiency in applications areas. However Wireless sensor network requires effective routing protocols for data transmission and process. The major challenges of Wireless sensor network are the design of robust routing protocol. The basic purpose of designing the routing protocol is to established correct and effective paths between source and destination in a secure manner. In this paper protocols AODV and DSR are compared to evaluate the performance of protocols which are network throughput, total length of trusted path, total number of hopes and total energy consumption with varying data traffic CBR (constant bit ratio) using MATLAB R2015a.
