A Simple Location Propagation Scheme for Mobile Sink in Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The overhearing feature of wireless transmission has been widely employed for applications such as network time synchronization, malicious packet-modifying attacks detection, and reducing redundant transmissions in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In this letter, the authors exploit the overhearing feature of wireless transmission to propagate the location information of a mobile sink to a source in WSNs, and to the best of their knowledge, this is the first design which exploit the overhearing feature for multi-hop information relay.
