Abstract: In Wireless Sensor Network when the sensory nodes are mobile, it is called Mobile WSN. Since the sensors are on the move, the topology of a MWSN is perpetually dynamical. So, finding an optimal routing path from the start node (where the event takes place) to the base station in Mobile WSN is highly complicated. Recent research works have resulted in the design of many innovative protocols for MWSN, however there are many unresolved issues like fault tolerance, connectivity, reducing the energy consumption, enhancing coverage, improving security etc. This work aims at proposing a proactive FT routing scheme for Mobile WSN using a dynamic routing table PFTP and then simulating in MATLAB for evaluating the various performance metrics.
