DEAL: Discover and Exploit Asymmetric Links in Dense Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Asymmetric links commonly exist in low power wireless sensor networks. However, it is difficult to discover and exploit them efficiently. In this paper, the authors propose DEAL, a link management scheme to Discover and Exploit Asymmetric Links efficiently in dense wireless sensor networks. Equipped with a novel feedback mechanism, DEAL dynamically adapts its link maintenance mechanism based on the estimated link quality, and manage the (small) neighbor table so as to retain the most useful information.
