Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) usually have a regular lattice structure and can be considered as multi-hop multi-route networks. In multi-route transmissions, even if the link quality of several routes decreases, the whole performance of the communication would be compensated by the help of the other routes, which is referred to "the route diversity effect". As generally known, forward error correction (FEC) techniques can enhance the route diversity gain. In this paper, route diversity effect in WSNs using turbo codes is investigated. We introduce a WSN having a triangle lattice structure. BER performances of an additive white Gaussian noise channel and a slow Rayleigh fading channel are evaluated in order to show the route diversity effect.
