Applications of sensor networks have become an emerging technology which can monitor a specific area and collect environmental data around the district. The energy of sensor nodes is tightly constrained so that there is a need to control the power consumption in node operations such as transmission and routing. In this paper, we carry out analysis on energy-aware routing in order to minimize the path loss. Our goal is to prolong the network lifetime and ease the management of sensor networks.

    ABSTRACT: A robust routing protocol is an efficient way to deal with false behaviors generated by abnormal nodes in a wireless sensor network (WSN). In this paper, we propose a dynamic adaptive and robust routing protocol for wireless sensor network based on probability control algorithm (PCA). PCA is one of stochastic optimistic methods; it converts routing quality evaluation information into the probability which affects the routing selection. Modelling analysis and simulation results show that PCA is efficient and robust.

    ABSTRACT: Due to their manufacture technical or work environment, some nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) routing may reveal misbehaviors which may get the performance of the WSNs dropped. For these misbehaviors are not borne by hackers, in similar cases, to deal with these issues, enhancing the security is helpless. Focus on these issues, first we put forward the concept of instant iteration probability, instant iteration probability variation, probability space mapping, and give the description of probability control algorithm and analysis. Moreover, we give the basic rule how to design performance function to make the corresponding algorithm convergent. Our related works provide a scenario, and design the corresponding routing protocol, analysis and simulation show that if some nodes in WSNs reveal misbehaviors, our routing protocol algorithm itself can automatically avoid using these nodes, and still keep the WSNs in good performance.
