Many routing protocols for ad-hoc networks and sensor networks have been designed, but none of them are based on groups. We propose to divide the network into several groups of sensors. When a sensor send data to other groups, the data has to arrive just to one sensor from each group, then they propagate it to the rest of sensors in their groups. We have simulated our proposal for different types of sensor topologies to know which type of topology is the best depending on the number of sensors in the whole network or depending on the number of interior sensors. We have also simulated how much time is needed to propagate information between groups. The application areas for our proposal could be rural and agricultural environments to detect plagues and to propagate it to neighbouring areas, or for military purposes to propagate information between neighbouring squads.
