Abstract—LEACH is one of the algorithms for packet routing in the wireless sensor network by reducing the energy consumption by nodes, but the routing strategy adopted in LEACH, still results in considerable energy consumption of node for transmitting and reception of the data. In order to reduce the consumption of the energy, we have proposed a routing scheme called Multipath-LEACH for energy efficient routing in wireless sensor networks. In this protocol/scheme, the whole network area is divided into cells and each cell will have a cluster head, and each cluster head will communicate with each other and then forward the data to the base station for communication, by following multipath routing strategy. The proposed protocol is developed on LEACH protocol incorporating the Multipath routing schemes in to it. The proposed work is tested for energy consumption and lifetime of the network and it is found that it reduces the energy consumption of the network and hence increasing the lifetime.

Index Terms—LEACH, multipath-LEACH, energy efficiency, network lifetime.
