Recent years have seen the emergence of wireless sensor network systems that must support high data rate and real-time queries of physical environments. With the emergence of high data rate sensor network applications, there is an increasing demand for high-performance query services. Dynamic Conflict-free Query Scheduling (DCQS), a novel scheduling technique for queries in wireless sensor networks. TDMA protocols designed for general-purpose workloads, DCQS has several unique features. It optimizes the query performance through conflict-free transmission scheduling based on the temporal properties of queries in wireless sensor networks.
