Abstract: Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks (MWSNs) have gained a lot of attention because of their applicability in different types of applications such as environment, healthcare, agriculture, industry automation, public safety, security and military surveillance. MWSNs are suffered from poor network lifetime because of the continuous disconnections between the mobile sensor nodes as they have limited battery power. This paper proposed and implement an adaptive algorithm(d-DSR) (implemented in DSR routing protocol) using ns-2.34,that handles the continuous disconnections because of low battery power of the mobile sensor nodes and improves the performance of the network in terms of throughput, packet delivery fraction, delay and network lifetime.
