Lifetime is the most important concern in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) due to limited battery power of sensor nodes. Moreover, a WSN should be capable of timely fulfilling its mission without losing important information in event-critical applications. In this paper, we focus on designing an energy-efficient and energy-aware real-time routing algorithm aiming to explore the long lifetime routing schemes in which delay constraint is satisfied in the presence of lossy communication links. To achieve this goal, our energy-aware forwarding protocol utilizes an optimum distance real-time routing algorithm to minimize energy consumption in unreliable WSNs. Simulation results reveal that the proposed algorithm outperforms other existing schemes in terms of energy consumption, network lifetime, and miss ratio.
