Sensor networks have been widely employed in many real-time applications. One of the most obvious challenges appearing to threaten the successful deployment of sensor networks is privacy issues including source-location privacy which cannot be adequately addressed by general security mechanisms. Focusing on this important kind of privacy, among many approaches proposed in literatures, self-adjusting phantom routing is a very successful one. But it still has some weaknesses. In this paper, we propose an improved version of it to enhance its performance. This method can decrease energy consumption and communication cost while increase the accuracy of the aggregate locations by minimizing their monitored areas
