In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) when an event is detected there is an increase in data traffic that might lead to packets being transmitted through the network close to the packet handling capacity of the WSN. The WSN experiences a decrease in network performance due to packet loss, long delays, and reduction in throughput. In this paper, the authors developed an adaptive congestion control algorithm that monitors network utilization and adjust traffic levels and/or increases network resources to improve throughput and conserve energy.
