Wireless sensor networks (WSNs), being a relatively new technology, largely employ protocols designed for other ad hoc networks, especially mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). However, on the basis of applications, there are many differences between WSNs and other types of ad hoc network and so WSNs would benefit from protocols which take into account their specific properties, especially in routing. Bhatti and Yue recently proposed an addressing scheme for mutli-hop networks that allows networks to avoid the fatal node failure problem that could occur with the ZigBee tree structure. In this work, we develop a new routing strategy based on Bhatti and Yuepsilas addressing scheme. The primary idea is to implement a hybrid routing scheme that combines flooding with shortest path methods to yield a more practical routing protocol for static WSN applications.
