Lifetime Optimization of Wireless Sensor Networks With Packet Propagation Table

In this paper, the authors explore two specific wireless sensor network applications of environmental monitoring and motion capturing, where the traditional methods of energy balanced data propagation are not ideally suited. These solutions are either too generic to exploit the specific characteristic of their application or are too complex to be implemented for simplistic requirements of their application. They propose and analyze a simple, energy efficient and energy balanced algorithm for the propagation of data in their specific application which can be used in other wireless sensor networks with similar characteristics and requirements.
