A Review On Mobile Sink Routing Algorithms For Wireless Sensor Network
Mobility has become a major research area in today’s communication world. Considering the Wireless Sensor
Network (WSN), sensor nodes are deployed in regions where itself monitoring of the sensor network is difficult task. So
some mechanism is required which keep the energy of these sensor nodes reserved by minimizing their effort for sending
data. Sink mobility thus plays an important role which itself collect data by moving inside or outside the sensor field.
Node’s effort to route construction thus gets minimized. But the mobility concept requires the location updates of the sink.
We have reviewed various mobile sink routing algorithms that aims to minimize energy consumption and thus improving
network lifetime. These routing algorithms define the route for data collection with respect to mobile sink movement.
