Cooperative Multipath Routing Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

Multipath routing technique is recognized as one of the effective approaches to improve the reliability of data forwarding. However, the traditional multipath routing focuses only on how many paths are needed to ensure a desired reliability. For this purpose, the protocols construct additional paths and thus cause significant energy consumption. These problems have motivated the study for the energy-efficient and reliable data forwarding. Thus, this paper proposes an energy-efficient cooperative multipath routing protocol with a small number of paths based on an inter path communication. The inter path communication (namely, cooperative multipath routing) in the proposed protocol helps to reinforce the multipath reliability and reduce the use of network resources. In addition, the proposed protocol provides a reliable end-to-end transmission time by using a transmission recovery method based on the local decision for the path or transmission failures.
