Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSN) are wireless sensor networks which have been exerted to industrial environments such as factories, refineries, power plants and etc for measuring, controlling and monitoring applications. One of the most important issues in these wireless networks is how the deployed nodes can communicate to each other so that appropriate requirements for these situations like optimized energy consumption of nodes, reliable and real time delivery of packets to be satisfied. In this paper we focus on optimizing energy consumption of nodes and reliable delivery of generated packets by source nodes in industrial applications. Thus, for achieving to these desired purposes, we introduce a novel routing protocol which uses geographic algorithm with a optimizing function for selecting the next candidate node and handling encountered voids along routing data packets towards sink where control room is located at there and has the responsibility of controlling and monitoring of data has reached.
