Due to natural weakness of sensor node in the point of wireless communications, reliable data delivery becomes one of the major challenges in wireless sensor networks. To handle this problem, many schemes in each layer have been proposed in the several literatures. Among those, MintRoute protocol is designed to achieve high reliability by choosing the best qualified path which is mainly measured by the delivery ratio of packets. Moreover, although some literatures provide the simulation and experimental results of performance evaluation, as far as the authors know, there is no previous research works to mention impact on performance by sensor deployment strategies, effect of failure, and the density of nodes. This paper details a simulation study that compare performance of MintRoute at different scenarios. In addition, research challenges will be given through analysis and discussion for performance.
