Wireless Sensor Networks is a promising prototype of networking and computing, where a node may be self powered and individual node have the capability to sense and compute and communicate. Wireless Sensor Networks have been proposed for variety of applications such as Industrial control and monitoring and Home automation and Consumer electronics and Security and Military sensing, Asset tracking and supply chain management, Intelligent Agriculture, Missile directing, Fire alarming, Landslide Warning, Environmental monitoring and health monitoring and commercial applications. In Wireless Sensor Network large number of nodes are deployed randomly. Depends on the network architecture the application may be personalized such as Energy Efficiency, Routing and Power Management and data dissemination. Energy efficiency is one critical issue for sensor networks because many sensors are equipped with batteries that have limited life time. In this paper, Energy efficient routing protocol for wireless sensor networks using spatial correlation based medium access control protocol compared with IEEE 802.11 is proposed. A model for WSN is proposed using spatial correlation based collaborative medium access control (CC-MAC) with AODV and DSR. Simulation results have been obtained by using Ns2. From the results, the performance of AODV is better compared to the other protocol as DSR also AODV and DSR performance are compared using CCMAC and IEEE 802.11.
