In Wireless Sensor Networks providing reliable and efficient communication under fading channels is one of the major technical challenges especially in industrial WSNs (IWSNs) with dynamic and harsh environments. This paper proposes the enhanced reactive routing protocol for wireless sensor networks inherits the advantages of opportunistic routing to provide reliable and energy efficient delivery against the unreliable wireless links by utilizing the local path diversity. The effective route discovery phase finds a robust guide path using this guide path data packets are progressed using cooperative forwarding. Based on the performance comparisons and simulation to other protocols, the proposed protocol remarkably improves the packet delivery ratio, while maintaining higher energy efficiency and low delivery latency.
