A small WSN is a collection of micro-sensors. Sensors send or receive data to a sink node, which collect and processes it. The Tree-Routing (TR) protocol was initially designed for such network. TR uses strict parent-child links for data forwarding. Hence, it saves bandwidth and energy by preventing network from flooding path search messages. For a large network TR shows large hop-count and more energy consumption. The Enhanced-Tree-Routing (ETR) protocol implemented over TR has structured node address assignment scheme. It considers other one-hop neighbor links, along with parent-child links, for packet forwarding if, it is found to be the shortest path to sink. Such decision in ETR involves minimum computation energy. Instead ETR, the emerging demand for data intensive and energy–efficient applications, needs new or improved routing protocols. In this paper we have proposed Non-Blocking-Orthogonal-Vector Spreading- Factor-Time-Multiplexing (NOVSF-TM) technique for sensor node addressing and Mobile Sinks placement so as to improve ETR protocol. The addressing scheme of NOVSF TM is shorter than ETR. Mobile Sinks positioning, at feasible sites, helps reducing excessive hop-count. This eliminate excessive multi-hoping and save energy. Simulation result shows that NOVSFTM technique is more energy-efficient than ETR protocol.
