Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: Wireless Sensor Network consists of small battery powered nodes with capabilities of sensing, computation, and wireless communication. In WSNs, many routing, power management and data dissemination protocols have been specially designed where energy awareness is an essential design issue. To achieve better energy efficiency, the focus, however, has been given to the routing protocols which might differ depending on the application and network architecture. In this paper, we mainly focuses on the various routing techniques, design challenges of routing protocols along with the performance issues of each routing technique in wireless sensor networks. Also present comprehensive analysis of different routing techniques used to achieve energy efficiency.
