Abstract
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are comprised of sensor nodes that forward data in the shape of packets inside a network. Proficient packet forwarding is a prerequisite in sensor networks since many tasks in the network, together with redundancy evaluation and localization, depend upon the methods of packet forwarding. With the motivation to develop a fault tolerant packet forwarding scheme a Self-Localized Packet Forwarding Algorithm (SLPFA) to control redundancy in WSNs is proposed in this paper. The proposed algorithm infuses the aspects of the gossip protocol for forwarding packets and the end to end performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated for different values of node densities in the same deployment area by means of simulations.
