Energy-Aware Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks With Adaptive Energy-Slope Control

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have proven and increased their popularity in many different applications where sensitive information is collected at sensor nodes and forwarded to a Central Analysis (CA) center. However, the constraints of limited resources and requirements for environment-dependent connectivity and life cycle have urged designers to seek more efficient WSN infrastructures. In this project, authors plan to explore the major constraints (i.e. network survivability, energy reserves, power scavenging), metrics, and tradeoffs affecting energy-aware routing strategies. The proposed routing strategy utilizes an Adaptive Energy-Slope Control (AESC) method to keep each and every node alive for a certain required maintenance/life-time period.
