Abstract A protocol called Energy Aware Routing Protocol (EARP) has been developed at DTU in an attempt to prolong the lifetime of a wireless sensor network, where the nodes of the network has the ability to collect environmental energy through a solar collector, in order to recharge the battery of the node. EARP has been tested through simulators and is now given to me to implement on a small imbedded device called a Sun SPOT (Sun Small Programmable Object Technology). The protocol is to run on a WSN consisting of a number of Sun SPOTs. A major part of this report deals with considering the way the nodes should communicate with each other and how the wireless sensor network should be initialized and maintained. The application created to run on the Sun SPOTs to do a practical implementation of EARP works at a basic level. The Energy Aware Routing Protocol works as intended, but certain technical problems with the Sun SPOTs were never completely solved in the nal application to run on the Sun SPOTs. But the application does work well enough to demonstrate EARP.
