Executive Summary

Selective transmission policies allow nodes in a sensor network to autonomously decide between transmitting or discarding packets depending on the importance of the information content and the energetic cost of communications. The potential benefits of these policies depend on the capability of nodes to estimate its current energy consumption patterns. As a case study, this paper tests the performance of a particular selective transmission algorithm over a simple network using a low power listening MAC protocol on real sensor node hardware.
