Hierarchical tree routing is a inefficient routing method of transmitting data in a wireless sensor network. Zigbee routing which is made to improve inefficiency of the hierarchical tree routing only fulfills the tree routing when a destination node don't exists in neighbor nodes of a router. We suggest a TFSR algorithm that is improved more than the zigbee routing. The TFSR algorithm generates a family set included a parent node and child nodes and over of a destination node, and uses this information. According to simulation results, the TFSR algorithm reduce routing costs over 30 percent in comparison with the hierarchical tree routing and the zigbee routing.
