A wireless sensor network (WSN) is a various networks consisting of a large number of tiny low-cost nodes and additional base stations. Each sensor node comprises sensing, processing, transmission, mobilize, position finding system and power units. Many applications in wireless sensor networks require communication performance that is both consistent and high quality. Unfortunately, performance of present network protocols can become important because of various interferences and environmental changes. present routing protocols estimates link quality based on the reception of control packets over a short time period. This method is neither efficient nor accurate enough to capture the dramatic variations of link quality. The purpose of the survey is to improve consistent network performance in wireless sensor networks such as more stable and the better transient performance. To improve the network performance in wireless sensor network by using a link metric that characterizes link over a longer period of time. Link metric combine with present short term estimations in routing algorithm designs. To further improve network performance a distributed route maintenance framework was designed based on feedback control solutions.
