Abstract—Limited power, poor memory, and low computing capabilities make the Internet of Things (IoT) devices resource restricted. Extending the network lifetime is one of the critical objectives in IoT. When it comes to preserving energy in a smart city, routing is one of the most critical factors. Designing an energy-efficient routing protocol boosts energy utilization to a significant extent. Networks with Reduced Power and Loss, the Energy Aware Routing Protocol for the IoT, decreases network traffic and extends network lifespan. As a result, routing variables such as load, remaining energy, and predicted transmission count identify the optimum parent for data transfer. The data traffic is dispersed throughout the network because it considers the load routing measure during route construction. As a result, it enhances network lifetime and achieves a high packet delivery ratio.
