—Two major controversial metrics that determine
the stability period of a wireless sensor network (WSN) are
accuracy and longevity. In this paper, we analyse the trade-off
between accuracy and longevity in WSNs. We investigate
different types of WSNs routing techniques together with their
applications and state of the art in WSN routing protocols and
determine their underlying success with regards to accuracy
and longevity. We provide alternatives for algorithms not
described in both parameters.
