Vol. 10  No. 2  pp. 241-245


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of small nodes with sensing, computing, and Communications capabilities. Development of Wireless Sensor Networks is highly demanded since these networks promise a wide range of potential applications. Their Application domain varies from habitat monitoring to monitor volcanic eruption. There has been a considerable amount of research in developing routing in WSN. In this paper, we proposed a new routing protocol based on Learning Automata. This protocol focuses on fairness of energy consumption and reduction of flooding overhead to increase the network lifetime. We have simulated our protocol and compared its functionality to EBRP and Directed Diffusion routing protocols. Simulation results show that our protocol achieves fairness of energy consumption, reduction of flooding overhead and load balancing across the network.
