Abstract: The main characteristics of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) include its: dynamic changing topology, multihop connections between the nodes and an effective dynamic routing protocol. These concerns are addressed in current research and it aims to improve the effective utilization of nodes in WSN. To improve the location search information of next hop, a novel Location Proximity (LP) search algorithm is used. Hence, proposed system addresses the concerns related to high energy consumption in WSN network characteristics under balanced and unbalanced network condition. The simulation results proved that proposed method fits well to changes in network than conventional algorithms. Also, the proposed method adopts well to dynamic change in network that results in increased throughput (23%) with improved lifetime (10%)and reduced energy consumption (reduced to 78%).
