A Semi Random Circle routing for mobile Sink joint Ray Routing for data (SRCRR) scheme is proposed for preserving sink-location privacy with a delay guaranteed. In the SRCRR scheme, the data are directionally routed along ray paths and stored at intermediate nodes probabilistically. The Sink moves in a semirandom circular pattern to collect data from the local nodes occasionally, which guarantees that the data will be collected with an acceptable delay and prevents attackers from predicting their locations and movements. The experimental results indicate that the performance of the SRCRR scheme is better than that of the previous schemes.
