Force-Skilled Protocol for Wireless Feeler Networks
Vigor-capable plays an important role in wireless sensor networks. The family of low power listening protocols was planned for lessening the idle listening, the power consumption in force starved wireless feeler networks. Low power listening is a MAC strategy that allows nodes to nap for some time (ti sec (the "Inter-listening" time)) when there is no activity concerning them. MAC protocols are characterized by a duty cycle: A node probes the channel every ti sec of sleep. The authors propose a approach to synchronize nodes on a slowly changing routing tree so that energy consumption is further reduced. At the sending node and the delay is considerably less.
