In unreliable communication environments, traditional routing protocols designed for static wireless sensor networks may fail to deliver data timely since link/node failures can be found out only after trying multiple transmissions. The main goal of the proposed protocol is to find more stable paths and to control the flooding overhead which will lead to higher level of scalability. This mechanism considers link stability for the route selection, which makes routing data more reliable and decreases the probability of retransmission, thus saves the energy and prolongs the lifetime of the whole network. In this work, we propose a cross-layer solution which utilises MAC layer information to improve routing mechanisms reliability and scalability in network layer.
