Opportunistic Routing in wireless sensor networks is a multi-hop routing. In this routing neighbors of a node overhear the transmission and form multiple hops from source to the destination for transfer of information. The set of neighbor nodes participating in the routing are included in the forwarder list in the order of priority. A node with highest priority is allowed to forward the packet it hears. This paper implements Energy Efficient Selective Opportunistic Routing (EESOR), reduces the size of forwarder list by applying a condition that the forwarding node is nearer to the destination. The path followed by acknowledgment packet follows opportunistic routing, assuring reliability of transmission and energy balancing. The simulated results obtained in NS2 simulator show that proposed EESOR protocol performs better than existing Energy Efficient Opportunistic Routing (EEOR) protocol in terms of average End-to-End delay, maximum End-to-End delay and Network Lifetime.
