In this paper, we propose a cooperative-aided routing protocol (CARP) in mobile ad-hoc wireless sensor networks (MAWSN). The main contributions and features of this paper are as follows. The CARP consists of two parts. The first part is the decision of routing routes which are decided on route stability based on mobility of mobile nodes to increase the operational lifetime of routes. The second part is the data forwarding via the cooperative-aided routing routes to increase packet delivery ratio with advanced SNR. We consider a realistic approach, in the points of view of the MAWSN, based on mobile sensor nodes as well as fixed sensor nodes in sensor fields while the conventional research for sensor networks focus on mainly fixed sensor nodes. The performance evaluation of the proposed CARP is performed via simulation and analysis.
