Abstract: Most of the smart wireless devices may act as servers, collectors of data and/or delivers the data at real time to users in a certain collaborative fashion. These devices (nodes) possess several source limitations like storage capacity, power limitation, data processing, radio limitation, etc. Thus, several routing algorithm have been adopted to manage the energy strategy of WSNs. Gossiping is a well-defined multi-hopping as an epidemic routing algorithm. Gossip algorithm uses random selection process to find the intermediate nodes during packet path construction, thus leads to its inefficiency. In this study, DGossip algorithm is proposed to develop Gossip algorithm. Network lifetime improved by considering the information of nodes location, energy and their distance to the base station. The simulation executed in MATLAB and the results of the proposed algorithm prove that its more efficient than Gossip and prolong the overall network lifetime.
