Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), with growing applications in the environment which are not within human
reach have been addressed tremendously in the recent past. For optimized working of network many routing algorithms have been proposed, mainly focusing energy efficiency, network lifetime, clustering processes. Considering homogeneity of network, we proposed Energy Efficient Sleep Awake Aware (EESAA) intelligent routing protocol for WSNs. In our proposed technique we evaluate and enhance certain issues like network stability,
network lifetime and cluster head selection process. Utilizing the concept of characteristically pairing among sensor nodes energy utilization is optimized. Simulation results show that our proposed protocol significantly improved the network parameters and can be a useful approach for WSNs.
