Wireless sensor network (WSN) is one of the new paradigms for sharing and disseminating data through a wide area. It is used for a huge range of real-time applications such as military surveillance, healthcare industry. The sensor nodes are very important to monitor the changes in the real-time environment. During the dissemination of data, there is a loss in the energy level of the sensor nodes. Hence, an energy-efficient routing technique is required to maximize the network lifetime. This research work analyzes three routing protocols, namely Fan-Shaped Clustering (FSC), Fuzzy-based Clustering, and Ring Routing (RR) protocols. From the experimental analysis, it is noted that the ring routing is highly efficient than the FSC and Fuzzy-based Clustering in terms of residual energy, number of alive nodes and dead nodes. The FSC yields better throughput and minimum end-to-end delay than the Fuzzy-based Clustering and ring routing.
