This paper proposes a simple and scalable approach to multisink routing scheme in wireless sensor networks. Wireless sensor network is a rapidly growing discipline, with new technologies emerging and new applications under development. In addition to providing light and temperature measurements, wireless sensor nodes have applications such as security surveillance, environmental monitoring, and wildlife watching. One potential problem in a sensor network is how to transmit packets efficiently from Single-Source to Multi-Sinks, i.e., to gather data from a single sensor node and to deliver it to multiple clients who are interested in the data. The difficulty of such a scenario is finding the minimum-cost multiple transmission paths. Many routing algorithms have been proposed to solve this problem. Most current algorithms address the reduction of power consumption, and potentially introduce a large delay. This paper proposes a novel multipath routing algorithm, called Hop-Count based routing (HCR) algorithm, which considers energy cost and transmission delay simultaneously. A hop count vector (HCV) is introduced to support routing decision. Moreover, an additional pruning vector (PV) can further enhance energy efficiency.
