Abstract: Routing in wireless sensor networks has been considered an important field of research over the past decade. Wireless sensor network essentially consists of data Sensor Nodes and Video Sensor Nodes, which senses both sound and motion of events. Single path routing protocol has been used for route discovery. Though this protocol reduces computation complexity and resource utilization, there are some disadvantages like reduced network throughput, network performance, increased traffic load and delay in data delivery. To overcome these drawbacks a new protocol called Interference Aware Multi-path Routing(IAMR) is proposed to improve the reliability of data transmission, fault-tolerance, Quality of Service. Here, the traffic intersection spread out among the multiple paths. This technique is applied between the sources and sink to reduce routing overhead and energy consumption. The proposed protocol is simulated using NS2.
