Wireless sensor nodes can be mobile within a chosen area and communicate with neighboring nodes in the bounds of protocol limits. Since communications among all network components in sensor networks are wireless, a peer-to-peer protocol is employed between two nodes. Among many concerns about design of sensor networks are growing bandwidth demands, speed of information retrieval and transporting bytes over the wireless networks to provide a quality service for the diverse requirements of the users, such as signal processing or multimedia applications. Although traditional routing protocols ignore power management issues for sensor networks, design and implementation of an efficient energy based routing is in the core interest. In this paper, we discuss the current power management protocols, and propose an energy restrained information dissemination scheme. Experimental analysis and comparison with related work show that using the proposed scheme we can save substantial energy as compared to the prior methods.
