AWARE: Activity AWARE Network Clustering for Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Both energy efficiency and high data relevancy are crucial for wireless sensor network applications. Network clustering and event-driven protocols are two main approaches typically used to fulfill those requirements. Existing techniques are either focused only on performance of clusterheads or too restricted to specific applications; however, few of previous work took advantage of the combination of both approaches. In this paper, the authors formalize the combined problem of network clustering in an event-driven manner, show its NP-Completeness and present an innovative distributed heuristic solution.
