Routing protocols in wireless sensor networks (WSN) allows node to send and receive packets. There are several routing protocols for WSN but it is not easy to fix on which one is efficiently best. In this paper, a comparative analysis of routing protocols is provided. ZRP (Zone Routing Protocol) and IERP (Interzone Routing Protocol) and three on demand routing protocols AODV (Ad-hoc On Demand distance Vector), DSR (Dynamic Source routing) and DYMO (Dynamic Manet On demand) protocols based on IEEE 802.15.4 is analyzed in 1000mx1000m flat terrain area and in Digital Elevation Model (DEM, irregular area) and compared in this paper. Comparative performance evaluation is done based on performance measuring metrics like Throughput, Average end-to-end delay, Average jitter and Residual battery capacity by using Qualnet 7.1 simulator tool. From the simulation results and analysis, the routing protocol that performs better is evaluated.
