A Case Study on Prototyping Power Management Protocols for Sensor Networks

Power management is an important problem in battery powered sensor networks as the sensors are required to operate for a long time (Usually, several weeks to several months). One of the challenges in developing power management protocols for sensor networks is prototyping. Specifically, existing programming platforms for sensor networks (e.g., nesC/TinyOS) use an event-driven programming model and, hence, require the designers to be responsible for stack management, buffer management, flow control, etc.
