WSNs are considered as the most promising technologies of this decade. The major objective of sensor nodes is to gather information from distinct places where other mechanism cannot be applied. However, the huge challenge is in collecting of data which is scattered across the network. Energy also plays a significant role in deciding an optimized route to collect this data spread across the network. This problem is analyzed and provided an efficient solution in the proposed algorithm.  Energy Efficient Path Selection (EEPS) is introduced that will help in forming a efficient path selection for MobiSink to traverse through the network. An intelligent layer is defined which will find data collection points (DCP) in advance in the network. Current research works focus on how to reduce the energy of sensor nodes to increase the lifetime of the network. But, advance identification mobile sink's moving trajectory not only optimizes the energy consumption, but also reduces the latency. The proposed algorithms and protocols are validated through simulation experiments using Network Simulator (NS2).
