ABSTRACT
WSNs are foreseen as one of the big opportunities in Information Technology. WSN technology is the measure for the future of Ubiquitous Computing. The motes preview a future pervaded by networks of wireless battery-powered sensors that monitor our environment, our machines, and even us. In this paper, we simulate and comparatively analyze the tree-based routing protocols: the Mint, the Broker, the Backbone and the Adaptive Tree using PROWLER. Our simulation results indicate that among all the tree-based routing protocols the adaptive tree protocol with and without additional layers has a low energy consumption, less loss rate and high throughput for all the radio models. However, the broker routing protocol with and without additional layers shows a slightly enhanced lifetime than the adaptive tree protocol with and without additional layers for all the radio models except the normal radio model (NRM). Further, for the NRM, the adaptive tree protocol with and without additional layers depicts a better lifetime than broker, mint and backbone routing protocols with and without additional layers.
