Abstract

Design of efficient routing protocols has been a critical issue in wireless sensor networks with mobile sinks (mWSN). In [1], Yu et al. proposed a distributed lightweight ring based routing protocol for mWSNs, which builds a multi-ring based network structure by creating a quasi-polar coordinate system on the network in order to support efficient ring based routing. However, in [1], only average case routing performance was reported via simulations. In this paper, we derive the asymptotical path-length performance of the ring based routing via extensive analyses. We hope the results reported in this paper can be helpful for understanding the characteristics of ring based routing.
