Internet of Things (IoT) is a new platform that provides the communication among heterogeneous objects. The aim of theIoT is to allow anything can communicate with anywhere at any time to share the information. Generally, devices in IoT are equipped with limited power. The power failure of single node changes the entire network architecture in the IoT framework. To attain an efficient routing, there is a need to design energy-efficient routing algorithm for IoT heterogeneous objects. The proposed Software Defined Network based Energy-Efficient Routing Protocol (SD-EERP) takes care to reduce energy consumption and transmission overhead of monitoring every device in the IoT paradigm. The aim of the proposed SD-EERP algorithm is to enhance the lifetime of the devices by choosing the energy-efficient path to reach the target device. The proposed model implements the Software Defined Network (SDN) based cluster architecture. The cluster head selection is based on residual energy and speed.All the cluster heads connect to the SDN controller to manage the entire network architecture.The simulation results show the proposed algorithm can minimize the energy consumption and increase the packet delivery ratio when compared with SCBRP.
