Geographic routing can provide efficient routing at a fixed overhead. However, the performance of geographic routing is impacted by physical voids, and localization errors. Accordingly, virtual coordinate systems (VCS) were proposed as an alternative approach that is resilient to localization errors and that naturally routes around physical voids. However, since VCS faces virtual anomalies,existing geographic routing can't work to banlance energy efficiently. Moreover, there are no effective complementary routing algorithm that can be used to address energy balance.In this paper we present An Energy Balanced virtual coordinate Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks(EBVCR),which combines both distance- and direction-based strategies in a flexible manner, is Proposed to resolve energy balance of Geographic routing in VCS .Our simulation results show that the proposed algorithm outperforms the best existing solution, over a variety of network densities and scenarios. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
