Presently, there are many research work for sensor networks. In our previous work, we implemented a simulation system for sensor networks. But, we considered that the event node is stationary in the observation field. However, in many applications the event node may move. For example, in an ecology environment the animals can move randomly. In this work, we want to investigate how the sensor network performs in the case when the event node moves. We carried out the simulations for lattice topology and TwoRayGround radio model considering AODV and DSR protocols. We compare the simulation results for two cases: when the event node is mobile and stationary. The simulation results have shown that the routing efficiency for the case of mobile event node is better than the stationary event node using AODV protocol. Also, the goodput for the mobile event node case does not change too much compared with the stationary event case using AODV,but the goodput is not good when the number of nodes is increased.
