In Wireless Sensor Network(WSN) a sensor node transfers sensing data to the base-node through multi-hop because of the limited transmission range. Also because of the limited energy of the sensor node, the sensor nodes are required to consume their energy evenly to prolong the lifetime of the network. LMPR is a routing protocol for WSN, LMPR configures the network autonomously based on level which is the depth from the base-node, and distributes the transmission and computation load of the network to each sensor node. This paper implements LMPR on TinyOS and experiments on the performance of LMPR in WSN. As the result, the average of the received rate of LMPR is 91.39% and LMPR distributes the load of the transmission and computation about 4.6 times compare to the shortest cost routing protocol. We expect LMPR evenly distributes the transmission and computation load of the network to each node, and the lifetime of the network will be longer than it used to be.
