A Survey on Scheduling Disciplines for Data Collection in Sensor Networks with Mobile Elements
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a highly distributed network of small and light-weight wireless nodes which deployed in large numbers. Recent research has provided the means by which a network can take advantage of mobile elements. WSN have wide range of applications but data collection is one of the main applications. Here, the mobility-assisted data collections with mobile element (i.e., mobile sinks and mobile sensors) have been proposed in an on-demand manner with low and balanced energy consumption for sensor nodes.
