Free registration required

Executive Summary

Data gathering is a critical operation in wireless sensor network applications, which necessitates energy efficiency techniques for increasing the lifetime of the network. Clustering is a similar effective technique that improves the energy efficiency and network lifetime in wireless sensor networks. This paper proposes an Energy Sorting Protocol (ESP) architecture in which clustering is used. The objective of ESP architecture in case of wireless micro-sensor networks is to accomplish low energy dissipation and latency without sacrificing application specific quality. In order to attain the objective, ESP employs randomized, adaptive, self - configuring cluster formation, localized control for data transfers and application - specific data processing, such as data aggregation or compression.
