A Hybrid Multi-Path Routing Algorithm for Industrial Wireless Mesh Networks
Multi-path routing, a routing technique that enables data transmission over multiple paths, is an effective strategy in achieving reliability in wireless sensor networks. However, multi-path routing does not guarantee deterministic transmission. This is because more than one path is available for transferring data from the source node to the destination node. A hybrid multi-path routing algorithm is proposed for industrial wireless mesh networks for improving reliability and determinacy of data transmission, as well as to effectively deal with link failures.
