Providing energy efficient and reliable communication under weak channels is one of the major technical challenges in industrial WSNs (IWSNs) with dynamic and harsh environments. In this paper, we presented the reliable and energy efficient reactive routing to increase the flexibility of link dynamics for WSNs/IWSNs. It is designed to boost the existing reactive routing protocols to provide reliable and energy-efficient packet delivery against the unreliable wireless links by utilizing the local path diversity. Specifically, we tend to introduce a biased backoff scheme during the route-discovery phase to find a robust guide path, which can provide more co-operative forwarding opportunities. Along this guide path, data packets are ravenously advanced toward the destination through nodes cooperation without, utilizing the location information. Through extensive simulations, we demonstrate that compared to other protocols reliable reactive routing protocol amazingly improves the packet delivery ratio, while maintaining high energy efficiency and low delivery latency.
