A Discussion of Maximizing System Performance in Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

One of the most critical issues in battery-powered and energy-constrained Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is how to make the most of energy efficient strategies to improve system performance. In this paper, the system performance is represented by energy-efficiency and data-efficiency of the network. For the case where all the wireless nodes are distributed uniformly, the authors put forward an optimization problem and propose an approach to maximize the network performance, by arranging task assignment and transmission routes optimally. With Uniform Distribution unsatisfactory, a new distribution is constructed to improve the system performance greatly.
