Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) play a key role in sensing, computing and communicating the information in most of the fields bringing substantial improvements in a broad spectrum of modern technologies. Data to be routed from source to destination is very difficult in WSN due to the mobility of the network elements and lack of central administration. In this paper an attempt has been made to evaluate the performance of routing protocol Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) for the wireless sensor nodes(IEEE 802.15.4 standard). The performance of routing protocol is analysed using various metrics like total packets received, throughput, average end-to-end delay, total bytes received and average jitter using Qualnet 5.0.2 simulator.

Keywords: WSN, AODV, Simulator, Jitter, Delay, Throughput, PDR.
