One of the main issue in the designing of routing protocols for Wireless sensor networks is delay efficiency due to the deficient energy resources of sensors. Behind the routing protocol design is to keep the sensors operating for as long as possible beyond the network lifetime. The delay consumption of the sensors is overhang by data transmission and reception. Therefore, routing protocols designed for WSNs should be as delay efficient as possible to prolong the lifetime of individual sensors, and hence the network lifetime. In this paper, we have observed a sample of routing protocols by taking into account to overcome delay based on several taxonomy criteria, including location information, network layering and data centricity. . For each of these categories, we have analyze a few example protocols to face the drawbacks to be overcome in the wireless sensor networks.
