Application Independent Energy Efficient Data Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless Sensor networks are dense networks of small, low-cost sensors, which collect and disseminate environmental data and thus facilitate monitoring and controlling of physical environment from remote locations with better accuracy. The major challenge is to achieve energy efficiency during the communication among the nodes. This paper aims at proposing a solution to schedule the node's activities to reduce the energy consumption. The authors propose the construction of a decentralized lifetime maximizing tree within clusters. They aim at minimizing the distance of transmission with minimization of energy consumption.
