Routing is one of themain research fields in theWSNarea. As the main problem is to achieve durable networks despite the scarce energy resources sensor nodes are provided with, research into routing protocols for WSNs mainly focuses on energy-efficient techniques to disseminate data and/or queries. This chapter has presented some of themost relevant and best-known techniques for energyefficient routing in the literature. Five different categories of routing protocols which adopt different approaches to achieving energy efficiency have been identified and characterized. The protocols surveyed have been described in the context of the category they belong to.
