IPv6 Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL), is based on building an acyclic graph where an Objective Function (OF) is responsible for selecting the preferred parent during Destination Oriented Directed Acyclic Graph (DODAG) construction. In this paper, we propose a new multi-metric OF based on Analytical Hierarchy Processes decision masking algorithm. AHP-OF, combines a set of routing metrics aiming to provide the best routing decision for RPL to satisfy the different application requirements for LLN s such as reliable applications, real time applications and highly available applications. Here we focus on the theoretical aspect of AHP-OF, and finally we evaluate the performance of AHP-OF compared to other OFs using Cooja simulator.
