The wireless sensor networks are networks of compact micro-sensors for data acquisition or monitoring some environment characteristics, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure and motion. These sensors are embedded devices capable of data communication. In many applications, sensor nodes are distributed or deployed over a geo-graphically large area. Due to their structure, data of measured values must be transferred among stations through these sensor nodes. For this reason a successful, energy efficient, fault tolerant routing protocol should be implemented to pre-vent data loss and other challenges within limited energy levels. This paper presents an agent based routing algorithm for wireless sensor networks, based on the selection of the idea of active nodes. Our proposed routing algorithm is related with energy and distance factors of each nodes. The main objective is to increase the lifetime of a sensor network while not compromising data delivery. Critical tasks such as measuring, analyzing and monitoring of energy levels of nodes are handled by these autonomous mechanisms.
