A Virtual Infrastructure Based on Honeycomb Tessellation for Data Dissemination in Multi-Sink Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks
A new category of intelligent sensor network applications emerges where motion is a fundamental characteristic of the system under consideration. In such applications, sensors are attached to vehicles, or people that move around large geographic areas. For instance, in mission critical applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), sinks can be associated to first responders. In such scenarios, reliable data dissemination of events is very important, as well as the efficiency in handling the mobility of both sinks and event sources. For this kind of applications, reliability means real-time data delivery with a high data delivery ratio.
