We propose a new routing protocol MobiSink (mobile sink) for underwater sensor networks (UWSNs). We deploy the sink mobility in four horizontal regions of the network. The mobile sink moves in its own region to collect data from the transmission range sensor nodes. The transmission range of a node is calculated after fixed interval of time for mobile sink. In MobiSink nodes also take help of transmission range neighbors to communicate with sink cooperatively, if sink is out of range. The… CONTINUE READING
