ZigBee recently has been used a lot in wireless sensor networks because of its low power consumption and affordable chips. However, ZigBee's existing hierarchical routing algorithm has a disadvantage in that a node may communicate with a nearby node over several hops. In this letter we propose a Quasi-Hierarchical Routing (QHR) algorithm that can improve the ZigBee hierarchical routing method's inefficiency by using brief information on neighbors within radio range. The network simulation evaluates this QHR's performance by comparing it to other ZigBee routing schemes.
