Abstract

A novel multihop energy-efficiency routing protocol for MIMO-based WSN is proposed in this paper. The protocol integrates cooperative MIMO technology with the multihop routing and energy consumption. When building route, the node not only consider its own energy consumption, but also consider the cost to the base station of the next hop node, thus the end-to-end energy consumption is decreased. Simulation results indicate that this protocol can obviously reduces the networks energy consumption.
