Devices for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are limited by power and thus routing protocols should be designed with this constrain in mind. This paper presents and evaluates an Energy Efficient Position Based Adaptive Real-Time Routing protocol (EFPBARP) as a novel, real-time, position based and energy efficient routing protocol. EFPBARP is a lightweight protocol that reduces the number of nodes which receive the RF signal using a novel Parent Forwarding Region (PFR) algorithm. EFPBARP as a Geographical Routing Protocol (GRP) reduces the number of forwarding nodes and thus the traffic and packet collision in the network. A series of performance evaluations through Matlab and Omnet++ simulations show significant improvements in network performance parameters and total energy consumption over CTP and Directed Flooding Routing Protocol (DFRP).
