Abstract

With the evolution of technology search and rescue operations are now been executed with the help of mobile robots. Wired mobile robot deployment is very cumbersome and constrained. Thus, the need arises for appropriate wireless technology that may support the same or even better functionality. ZigBee is gaining popularity as supporting technology to facilitate the working of mobile robots for search and rescue operations. This is because ZigBee based nodes utilize the industrial, scientific, and medical frequency band that supports a data rate up to 250 kbps. This paper presents a packet forwarding mechanism for ZigBee based mobile wireless sensor network nodes. The results achieved through the reported work shows that the packet loss rate comes around to be 2 percent resulting in a 98 percent successful packet reception at the receiver end.
