Abstract

Mobile ad-hoc and sensor network (MASNET) is a collection of mobile sensor nodes connected via wireless links which can dynamically establish a temporary network of their own, when required, without relying on pre-existing infrastructure. However, mobility of the nodes poses some substantial threats in the network such as power draining and frequent change of the network topology. Due to the dynamic nature of this network, routing of packets is very challenging. Keeping this in mind, we have carried out an extensive survey on various state-of-the-art cluster based routing techniques for MASNET .In this paper, a comprehensive survey on cluster based routing protocols in MASNET are presented with focus on the advantages and disadvantages of each routing protocol. Energy consumption, end-to-end delay, throughput, and packet delivery ratio are some of the parameters that play a significant role in determining whether a routing protocol is efficient or not.
