In today’s era with the rapid advancement in the field of wireless communication highlight the concept of Wireless sensor network (WSN) and now this topic become the center of attraction for all research scholars these days. The main reason for tremendous demand of sensor network is its use in almost every field where human can’t even think to approach. Beside of number of advantages WSN has to go through number of design issues and challenges to make proper use of sensing nodes in almost all over the network to satisfy the ongoing demand of market. Wireless Sensor networks are generally used for to transmit collective information from number of nodes to one base station. To carry information from a single node to base station every node utilizes some energy. The aim of wireless sensor network is to minimize the use of energy to transmit information from senor node placed at different location to base station and to achieve this number of routing protocols are designed for WSN. In this paper we are comparing various routing protocols based on their features, operation, area in which they are used, lifetime and the amount of energy they consumed to transmit message.
