Abstract: With the advances in micro-electronics, wireless sensor gadgets have been made substantially littler and more coordinated, and large-
scale wireless sensor networks (WSNs) based the participation among the noteworthy measure of nodes have turned into a hotly debated issue.
"Large-scale" implies for the most part large region or high thickness of a system. As needs be the routing protocols must scale well to the
system scope augmentation and node thickness increments. A sensor node is regularly energy-constrained and can't be energized, and in this
manner its energy utilization has a very critical impact on the adaptability of the protocol. To the best of our insight, at present the standard
strategies to tackle the energy issue in large-scale WSNs are the various leveled routing protocols. In a progressive routing protocol, every one of
the nodes are separated into a few gatherings with various task levels. The nodes inside the abnormal state are in charge of data aggregation and
administration work, and the low level nodes for detecting their environment and gathering data. The progressive routing protocols are ended up
being more energy-proficient than level ones in which every one of the nodes assume a similar part, particularly as far as the data aggregation
and the flooding of the control bundles. With concentrate on the various leveled structure, in this paper we give an understanding into routing
protocols planned particularly for large-scale WSNs. As per the distinctive goals, the protocols are by and large ordered in light of various
criteria, for example, control overhead decrease, energy utilization mitigation and energy adjust. Keeping in mind the end goal to pick up a
thorough comprehension of every protocol, we feature their imaginative thoughts, portray the basic standards in detail and break down their
points of interest and hindrances. Also a correlation of each routing protocol is led to exhibit the contrasts between the protocols as far as
message unpredictability, memory necessities, localization, data aggregation, bunching way and different measurements. At last some open
issues in routing protocol plan in large-scale wireless sensor networks and conclusions are proposed.
