Abstract

Due to implementation of routing protocols in limited power supply devices in wireless sensor networks, this paper presents and evaluates Energy Eficient Rainbow Collection Tree Protocol (EFRCTP) as a novel, real-time, position based and energy efficient routing protocoli that is a new version of Rainbow Collection Tree Protocol (RCTP). RCTP is an enhanced version of Collection Tree Protocol (CTP) as a lightweight routing protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)s. This paper analyses the impact of the Radio Frequency (RF) range to reducing the number of nodes which receive the signal by using a novel Parent Forwarding Region (PFR) technique. EFRCTP as a Geographical Routing Protocol (GRP) reduces the number of forwarding nodes and finally reduce the number of packets are sent and received and also to reduce collision in the network. A series of performance evaluations through Matlab and Omnet++ simulations show significant improvements in network performance parameters and total energy consumption over CTP and directed flooding routing protocols.
