Wireless sensor network swiftly emerges as one of the most prominent technology for industrial and human security application. The paper presents hybrid routing protocol for monitoring of radiation at nuclear plant using Wireless Sensor Network technology. The proposed protocol uses hybrid clustering for deployment of sensor nodes in the given area. There are two types of heterogeneous sensor nodes deployed in different region based on energy level for efficient monitoring of radiation. The super node sense the radiation level in their region continuously and transmit the sensed data to base station using fuzzy based clustering technique along with node scheduling. The normal nodes are used for routing purpose along with super nodes. The proposed protocol yields the optimum energy consumption and improve the performance and network lifetime for monitoring the nuclear plant surrounding.
