Comparative Study On Routing Protocols Of Wireless Sensor Network For Precision Agriculture
Precision agriculture can be defined as the art and science of using advanced technology to enhance crop production. Wireless sensor network (WSN) is a major technology that drives the development of precision agriculture. Routing protocols are in charge of discovering and maintaining the routes in the network. In this paper, topological structure based routing protocols (flat and hierarchical) are comparatively studied with different parameters such as throughput, end to end delay and total energy consumption of the nodes for precision agriculture.
