Protocol Integration for Intelligent Monitoring Applications in Wireless Sensor Networks
Integration of algorithms and protocols from different layers will make possible the deployment of large-scale wireless sensor networks which are the basis of interesting monitoring applications. The growing number of nodes that comprise within these networks requires a correct organization and efficient node synchronization to ensure data reliability. In this paper, the authors focus on the integration of fuzzy-logic based routing with a TDMA MAC protocol. By considering the experimental results of them working separately, they have integrated them to work together.
