Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have recently become an integral part of a wide range of systems such as surveillance, target tracking, security and health management systems. WSNs deploy a large number of sensor nodes that cooperate to complete a sensing task. Large scale WSNs usually suffer from energy efficiency and quality of service issues. Although different hierarchical cluster-based approaches have been proposed by the research community, reliability, heavy load and load balancing are still open issues to be addressed. This paper proposes a new hierarchical and cluster-based topology formation and routing protocol. This protocol aims to guarantees reliability and avoids the heavy load issue by adapting the EIGRP wired protocol to the sensor context.
