Wireless sensor networks have great potential as a means of realizing a wide range of applications, such as natural environmental monitoring, environmental control in residential spaces or plants, and object tracking. As a frame to actualize these sensor applications, this paper assumes a monitoring-oriented wireless sensor network, which periodically gathers their sensing data from all sensors placed in a large scale area. This paper proposes a novel autonomous decentralized control scheme with data aggregation technique to prolong the lifetime of monitoring-oriented wireless sensor networks.
