Intelligence is the power which makes the owner capable of making a decision defined by reasoning. When traditional solutions and approaches, such as First Principal Modelling or Statistical Modelling, are not feasible or able to effectively address complex real- world problems, then Computational Intelligence with some nature-inspired computational techniques and methodologies is employed.
Energy-efficient Rainbow Collection Tree Routing Protocol (ERCRP) is presented and evaluated as a novel, real-time, position-based and energy-efficient routing protocol in this research. ERCRP is a lightweight protocol that reduced the number of nodes which receive the RF signal using a novel Parent Forwarding Region (PFR) algorithm. ERCRP as a Geographical Routing Protocol (GRP) reduced the number of forwarding nodes and thus decreases traffic and packet collision in the network.
