Abstract

Energy is a unique characteristic of Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks (UASNs) which is limited in features and a basic point on which the whole network depends. On the basis of efficient energy utilization, we propose a routing protocol Enhanced and Efficient Balance energy consumption in Data Gathering (EEBDG) for UASNs. This routing scheme EEBDG, works for large scale area networks efficiently and effectively by balanced energy consumption. EEBDG removes the deficiency of previous routing scheme in which mixed routing performs all over the network which is not possible in real world when network size increases. By the increase in area of a network, we avoid the direct transmission mode using only hop by hop transmission. The contribution of our work is to extend network lifetime with large scale in the form of increased nodes and dimension, minimize energy utilization by balanced energy consumption, increased number of packets transfer. Our trade-off is packet drop ratio when number of nodes is small in sparse networks, but when the number of nodes increases our packets drop is also improved.
