Location-Based Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Network: A Survey
Keywords:wireless sensor networks, mobile sink, routing, backbone-based, and rendezvous-based.
Mobile sink node properly used in
routing protocols can improve network
performance. Thus we investigate locationbased routing protocols. The latter strategy
can be further classified into backbonebased and rendezvous-based routing
protocols. We first describe the main
principles of the two location-based routing
protocols with sink mobility support
respectively. Then we analyze their
advantages and disadvantages.
