A SINR-AODV routing algorithm for wireless sensor networks

Ling Liang, Zhijun Tang, Huichen Liu, Yinjun Deng, Jie Zhan


 A distance vector routing algorithm based on node interference factors is proposed to aim at the problems of node wireless interference and energy limitation in wireless sensor networks. The algorithm introduces the signal-to-interference-to-noise ratio (SINR) value into the routing request (RREQ) control message. During the route discovery process, it establishes a SINR optimal route between the source node and the destination node. This method can effectively reduce the influence of node interference factors and improve the communication quality of wireless sensor networks. In addition, the proposed distance vector routing algorithm based on signal-to-interference noise ratio (SINR-AODV) is compared and analyzed with the classical AODV routing algorithm. The simulation results show that the proposed routing algorithm is significantly better than the classical AODV algorithm in terms of average delay, data transmission success rate and network throughput performance.
