Energy balancing routing (EBR) is an efficient strategy to prolong the lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In this paper, the network lifetime of minimum energy routing (MER) and energy balancing routing of multi- hop multi-to-one WSN is analyzed. A localized energy balancing routing (LEBR) algorithm is proposed. LEBR combines power control with routing based on geographical location information. LEBR utilizes local energy balancing to achieve global energy balancing, and it is a distributed and localized energy balancing strategy. The performance of LEBR is simulated and analyzed, and is compared with MER. The result shows that the performance of LEBR is better than MER, and it prolongs network lifetime efficiently.
