Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are important in an autonomous communication networks as they are capable of sensing the physical environment and have been deployed for variety of applications such as for monitoring road traffic, air pollution, water levels, tectonics among other things. However, nodes density and route reliability are major issues when deploying WSN in wide areas. In this work, a dynamic topology routing protocol called mobility aided routing (MAR) for Ad-hoc wireless sensor networks using java computer modelling is proposed. The performance of the proposed model was examined in terms of network energy usage, delay and route reliability, and compare with the conventional dynamic source routing (DSR). Simulation results show that at lower densities, MAR performed better than DSR when considering network-wide energy use and data extraction delay. The paper also showed that search algorithm is a fundamental part in the way MAR works. The results show that there is no significant difference between the two mobility models examined once a realistic deployment density of nodes is used.
