In order to evaluate the performance of ESCDD protocol, the simulation platform is established.
The packet delivery rate of ESCDD is significantly higher than the other three protocols.
ESCDD has less data collection delay compared with GeRaF, EERNFS, and REEFG.
The average energy consumption of ESCDD is significantly less than the other three protocols.
As shown in Figure 7, compared with the other three protocols, ESCDD can significantly reduce the energy consumption of every node.
