Abstract: The wireless sensor networks due to its invincible property finds its application in several areas. For all these applications, the energy utilization is the factor which determines the performance of the sensor networks. Routing of information and transmitting the same to the base station plays a vital role because the nodes are battery operated and the energy resources are scarce. The study proposes a novel protocol called Position Based Gossiping (PBG) for providing a solution for addressing the problems in gossiping technique. The proposed technique enhances the energy within the network and improves the lifetime of the network as compared to the conventional routing protocols. Moreover, the energy between the nodes are equalized which considerably enhances the lifetime of the network. As added the protocol minimizes the delay in transmission and loss of data packets.
