Reliability of data transmission is a key question in data-centric Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). A multi-path based transmission method is presented to solve this problem for hierarchical WSNs. The method can find all paths for any arbitrary given node to base station, and select the best way based on energy-awareness. By introducing transmit consumption power values, we can make this method more versatility. Finally, the experiment shows that the reliability of our algorithm is 10% higher than that of others.
