A Survey on Secured and Energy Efficient Hierarchical Routing Based Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks

Authors(2) :-Harish N J, H S Manjunatha Reddy

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) domain is one of the most emergent fields in today’s smart world with plenty of applications such as defense, environment and wildlife monitoring, healthcare etc. A basic wireless sensor network is consisting of number of randomly deployed sensor nodes to collect and transmit the data to base station. Since charging and replacement of batteries is not feasible in wireless network, hence designing of energy efficient routing protocols along with better network lifetime is area of interest for researchers. Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) was the basic routing protocol which was proposed around 17 years ago. This routing scheme has been further enhanced in order to optimize the network parameters as per the requirement. In this paper, we have surveyed different hierarchical routing protocols which are enhanced versions of standard LEACH algorithm. We have also presented a comparative analysis for the surveyed routing schemes. This survey paper finally makes inroads for further researches in the domain of hierarchical routing protocols for wireless sensor networks.
