The Relative Coordinate Rumor Routing (RCRR) is a hybrid routing protocol based on a straight line routing scheme proposed to overcome the drawbacks of the Rumor Routing (RR) protocol which is based on a random walk approach. This paper presents a performance study of the RCRR protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks. The main objective is to evaluate the performances of the new RCRR protocol under different situations and considering different factors such as network size or the impact of the positions of the Beacon nodes originally placed along the horizontal and the vertical line of the 4 cardinal points. Through the presented scenarios and simulations, it is shown that the energy consumption is much more in some cases and much less in other cases. Based on this study, guidelines can be deduced to improve the behavior of the RCCR routing protocol. © 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
