Communication Models for Algorithm Design in Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

With continuing advancements in sensor node design and increasingly complex applications for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), formal communication models are needed for either fair comparison between various algorithms or the development of design automation in WSNs. Toward such a goal, the authors formally define two link-wise communication models, namely, the Collision Free Model (CFM) and the Collision Aware Model (CAM). While programming under CFM resembles similarity with traditional parallel and distributed computation, performance analysis in CFM is often inaccurate or even misleading, due to its over-simplification on modeling packet collisions.
