AB - Fractal geometry is a subject that studies non-integer dimensional figures. Most of the fractal geometry figures have a nested or recursive structure. This paper attempts to apply the nested or recursive structure characteristics of fractal geometry to wireless sensor networks. We selected two filling curves, Node-Gosper and Moore, as our research subjects. Node-Gosper Curve is a curve based on node-replacement with a fractal dimension of two. Its first-order graph consists of seven basic line segments. When the hierarchy becomes larger, it can be filled with a hexagonal-like shape. To allow the mobile anchor node of wireless sensor networks to walk along this curve, the number of levels of the Node-Gosper Curve can be adjusted according to parameters such as the sensing area and transmission range. Many space-filling curves have the common shortcoming that they cannot loop on their own, that is, the starting point and the end point are not close, which will cause the mobile anchor node to use extra paths from the end point back to the starting point. The Moore curve has a self-loop, i.e., the starting point and the ending point are almost at the same position. This paper applies Moore curve to the path planning of the mobile anchor node. We can use this path to traverse the entire sensing area and stay in the central point of each square cluster to collect the information of the nodes where the events occurred. The self-loop characteristic of the Moore curve is expected to reach each sensor to collect data faster than other space filling curves, that is, the transmission latency of the sensor traversal will be reduced
