In Mobile wireless sensor networks (MWSNs) one major finding is that these networks suffer from energy consumption following reasons. Idle listening to the channel, retransmitting data, overhearing, and packet overhead etc.This will increasing the power usage and reduces network lifetime. For this reason we proposed a method in which network routing is enhanced using AOMDV (Ad hoc On-demand Multipath Distance Vector Routing) protocol which can accurately solves link failures problems in routing of mobile wireless sensor networks by finding multipath route from source to destination on demand. For this reason retransmission of data, packet delay, and packet overhead will decreased. Power management with S-MAC (Sensor Medium Access control) protocol by turning off/on radio frequencies through this saves energy and life of network.
