Statistical Reliability for Energy Efficient Data Transport in Wireless Sensor Networks

Executive Summary

Typical wireless sensor network deployments are expected to be in unattended terrains where link packet error rate may be as high as 70% and path length could be up to tens of hops. In coping with such harsh conditions, the authors introduce a new notion of statistical reliability to achieve a balance between data reliability and energy consumption. Under this new paradigm, the energy efficiency of a comprehensive set of statistically reliable data delivery protocols is analyzed. Based on the insight gained, they propose a hybrid system which combines the energy Efficient and Statistically Reliable Transport (eESRT) protocol with the implicit and explicit ARQ (ieARQ) protocol.
