In general, sensor nodes are deployed in left unattended area. In such situation feeding energy to the batteries or replacing the batteries are difficult or even sometimes impossible too. In this manner, delaying the system lifetime is a paramount advancement objective in this viewpoint. In this paper, we propose a new Energy-efficient Data centric Routing protocol called DRUG. An adaptive data driven methodology, to discover an ideal optimal way from source to sink has been proposed, when the sensor nodes are deployed randomly in a limited service area with a single sink. Using the NS-2 Simulator, we compare the performance of DRUG with FLOODING and SPIN protocol.
