Multilevel routing for data transmission in internet of things

Bhawna Ahlawat, Anil Sangwan


Internet of things (IoT) is the network in which sensor nodes sense information and transmit sensed information to sink. The small size and far deployment of SN results in causing problems related to higher energy utilization. Many techniques have been proposed in the last years to improve lifetime of the network. The already developed methods are the clustering techniques which are path optimization algorithms. The virtual grid-based dynamic routes adjustment (VGDRA) is the protocol which is already been proposed to increase network’s duration. The VGDRA protocol improve life span but doesn't solve the issue of energy hole which affect network performance. This work aims to improvise the VGDRA algorithm to solve the power hole problem. The utilization of cache motes is done in the network and the sink will move energy to cache nodes for the data collection. MATLAB is executed to simulate the suggested model, and amount of dead motes, active ones and amount of packets, whose transmission is done to base station (BS).
