Forwarding and Routing Stateless Multi-Hop Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Energy conservation can be achieved by the use of clustering routing protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). The people have a great impact on the system lifetime. In these WSNs, the concepts of communication between Cluster Head (CH) nodes and Base Station (BS), data aggregation and round can be approached in a different way. This paper studies a cluster-based multi-hop routing protocol. The proposed approach introduces a progressive data aggregation, and a sequential data request during a round. Simulation results show that the new Forwarding and Routing Stateless Multi-Hop (FRSM) protocol extends network lifetime (improved by 50%) and lowers energy consumption.
