There are various sparing protocols that help to gather the information from various sensors and broadcast via network as represented in this paper. The protocol known as LIBP, it is a lightweight pathway helps to build a spanning routing tree with minimum distance. The distance between the routing tree to root node that based upon the scatter information via sporadic beaconing process. The information can be gathered through sensors via LIBP. The matching traffic record can flow from note to sink in a network. The simulation is done on the Contiki OS under a Cooja simulator. The LIBP outperforms the special version of RPL in the term of power consumption, scalability, and throughput in the CTP protocols.
