Ubiquitous technology through sensor networks is being applied to numerous industrial fields specially to increase the quality of human life (QoL). Therefore, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) lossless data is one of the communications challenges to provide accurate data. Although, end-to-end data retransmission has evolved as a reliable transportation in Internet, this method is not applicable to WSNs due to the lack of reliability of wireless link and resource constraints in sensor nodes. In our previous paper, we proposed a reliable data transfer using path-reliability and implicit ACK called RTOD on WSN. However, path reliability calculation components such as RSSI, channel error rate, number of transmission in RTOD method have not been studied thoroughly. In this paper, we analysis path reliability components and simulate by using NS-2. Moreover, we propose limited number of transmission method (LTM) for WSNs. Proposed scheme shows average 4.1% fault tolerance.
